The birthplace of James Matthew Barrie (1860-1937), playwright and creator of Peter Pan, is a little four-roomed cottage filled with souvenirs of the writer. In the exhibition room, you can see the facets of this discreet man and his mastery of stage techniques (Dear Brutus, The Admirable Crichton) and two ancient Peter Pan costumes.
