There weren't a lot in there but you didn't have to pay too much to go. I'd do it if you had some time to kill but I wouldn't go out of my way to go there

The history was very interesting and gave a great overview of the area. Wish it had more items and more time to look around.

A good picture of how it was back in the beginning and how it is today. A lot of information on the early settlers. Thought $5 was a reasonable fee to pay.

This small Museum located on the Picton Foreshore is staffed by. Volunteers. The volunteers have a wealth of knowledge about the Picton area and displays. There are some interesting items and they give quite an insight into the life, early settlers would have had ,when they arrived in Picton.

Loved the depth and hardwork put into the displays. No it is not a big fancy building like te papa let's save that for the major cities. A simple kiwiton building with South Island style.

This museum packs a great deal of information and a large number of exhibits in a small area. I lost myself in the museum for a couple of hours without realising the time had passed.
