Amazing display of historical artefacts. Take time to absorb yourself in the history and tie this in with other tours and museums on the island.

A good core of information on the Bounty. However much of the large collection is "stuff" that can be found in many other mainland museum. A bit higgledy piggledy without updated information. Many of the hand drawn posters are a museum within the museum.

We had the Museum to ourselves and really enjoyed it. Needs a bit of a clean and dust but having run a small history museum with a group of volunteers I know just how hard this is.

Interesting private collection from a couple who moved from VIC to Norfolk back to 1980's, great research work on Pitcairn settlers, especially interesting to read the hand written books by the owner of museum in the very first room when you enter the museum, the books give you a lot of inside folk story you will not get from other...

You spend as little or as much time as you like wandering around the museum. There is an amazing amount of history stored in this maze of rooms. Brings back a lot of memories from my childhood.

Fantastic way to make us felt somewhere on time, not somewhere but at the time when the history took place! We felt involved as those who were living at Norfolk. It left in our minds and hearts a mark that we will never forget.
