This is a collection of one man over many years. It's truly remarkable. It would benefit hugely from being in a better building - it was very hot and humid when we were there. The collection really needs to be culled and upgraded as it...More

This private museum is a must explore for those fascinated in the history of Norfolk Island. Each of the five rooms captures different experiences. Don't be fooled by its unassuming exterior.

We spent 2 hours quietly browsing through this unique museum which crams in a vast collection of items reflecting the Second and Third Settlements. Very educational for those wishing to know more about those eras. The items and topics are diverse and informative. It is...More

Although this establishment had plenty to see and had many Bounty artifacts, it seem to be more a "bric a brac" museum full of "old wares" from past generations. That said, it did have good research facilities. We thought it needed a good clean up...More

If you are really, really into history and want to sit and read archives you would like this place, but otherwise don't waste your time and money. The place looks like hasn't been dusted in years and I couldn't get out fast enough.
