This is very well kept old house with a beautiful garden. It has rich collection of antiques. Guide will tell you the story of people lived there and things from the collection (old clothes, household items, furniture, some personal use items).

This is a beautiful example of an early New Zealand house, giving an insight into what home life was like in the mid to late 1800s. The house is full of interesting objects and furnishings, my wife and I loved every aspect of it. Entry fee is cheap, considering the amount of effort that goes into this house. Friendly and... More

My granddaughter came with me to visit Broadgreen House as she has developed an interest in old houses. After a lovely welcome from the two volunteers one of them accompanied us to the house as a guide. I saw lots of things from my childhood such as butter pats, the old copper for the laundry and iron bedsteads to name... More

A very interesting house to visit with lots of historical items to see and learn about. Our lovely guide Bev was very informative and gave us a personal tour of the house pointing out items of interest and giving us details of the families that had lived in the house. The house is very well cared for and all the... More

The historic house is some 8km from Nelson city centre but easy to find wth a GPS. Entry fee is $4 NZD per adult which is more than reasonable (a cup of coffee would cost $4.50 here). We were given a full tour of the house by the most friendly guide, Brian. One could learn much about the history of... More

We returned for a second visit to Broadgreen, this time with a 7 year old who had already shown disinterest in museums. But Broadgreen was a hit, mainly due to our guide who made the tour child-appropriate and lots of fun. We enjoyed exploring the rooms, imaginging which bedroom we would have as our own and also trying on a... More

One of the best colonial houses I have ever visited in my 70 years. Beautifully and authentically displayed with an excellent commentary. A credit to the Nelson council and volunteers. Too wet to view the garden. The bluebells were out and the roses in bud.
