Cool history of the area. I am a Kiwi and thought it was ok. We had time to kill before the ferry. Overseas visitors might think it quaint :o) Some great maori pieces on display.

This is a well-maintained and comprehensive museum. The staff-member on duty was most welcoming and well-informed. As it was pouring rain, we spent over an hour inside learning about Picton.

The Worst museum and also the most expensive museum we have ever been to, it resembled a garage sale. The staff were also very rude.

Having spent holidays in Picton with my grandparents from 1946 until about 1958, I was able to see photographs of my great great grandparents who were early settlers here. Peter is a great historian and knew almost everyone I had known there as a child. Thank you for your time. Your museum just gets better and better.

Not enough information about all the people in the photographs e.g. the kind of lives they had led.
