“So much to see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

There is so much to see in this museum that you should allow a few hours, particularly if you want to read some of the compiled information.

“A great private museum.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

Years of work in this museum. Heaps to look at. Allow at least an hour, longer if you want to look properly at everything.

“Family History search”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Information overload here. So much history has been collected. A fascinating place. You could spend all day at this small museum and know the entire history of both Norfolk and Pitcairn Islands.
Well worth a long look

“Understated but extraordinary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2012

The research done by the now-deceased owner (the place is run by his wife) was incredible. Dozens of handwritten journals, lots of artefacts. This is a "must see" -- better than the Kingston ruins.

“Living History - well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

Amazing collection of bibs and bobs as well as detailed historical records/research of various families and events of Pitcairn and Norfolk Island history.
The books along the wall show careful research and detail by the owner's husband (now passed) and it surely is a labour of love.
