Cecile and Annette Dionne visited the log cabin on Sunday where they were born in 1934.
They’re the two surviving Dionne quintuplets, and were touring the museum that was once their home in North Bay, Ontario.
According to a spokesperson they haven’t visited it in more that 20 years.
The five Dionne girls were instantly famous around the world when they were born 84 years ago in a log cabin in Corbeil, Ontario near North Bay.
In 1985 the city of North Bay purchased the home and created a museum about the quints and their family, but when the Chamber of Commerce stopped operating it, the city closed it in 2015.
It was moved to a new location in November, 2017, and was open to the public for the day for the two quints’ visit.
