“Very Interresting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

During a shore excursion, we stopped to visit the James Norman Hall Home. It was very interesting. Although this is not the original house, all artefacts are family owned. Mr Hall’s daughter Nancy was there that day and passed on a few stories to us and her husband Nick explained all the military memorabilia to us. For Mutiny on the Bounty fans, this was a nice piece of history still preserved for all to enjoy. Recommended.

“A Nice Small Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2006

While not included in all around the island tours, it is worth seeing if you have the chance. Yes, the house itself is a reconstruction, but to exact specifications of the original which was located where the main road is now. The museum is small but well organized and with interesting artifacts from Mr. Hall's quite interesting life. The custodians who welcomed us were extremely pleasant and left us to view exhibits at our leisure.There is even a small refreshment area.
