this is really worth a look into the past with the house restored perfectly to the ear in which it was built.

“Another must do.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

I was transported back in time with the explanations given as to how it was all those years ago. The tour drivers make sure that it is interesting and have their own spins on life at this time.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

This house will give a good idea of what it was like for an Officer in the time of the penal settlements - particularly when you find out the number of children that lived in some of the houses. They must have been so cramped.

There are others which are still used as general houses but are not restored. A couple of the other partially ruined ones have been enclosed (roof and walls closed in) to protect from the weather but it's not intended to further restore them.

Can be also be done as part of a tag-along tour when you follow the guide in your car and visit the house plus several of the museums such as the Commissariat.

“A small but interesting museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2009

This house is a restored house on Quality Row in Kingston. It is part of the Norfolk Islands Museums. It is possible to get a AUD25 multi day pass to all 3 museums.

The house is well maintained. There are some brief notes to accompnay you as walk through the property. The property is only small and will take you only a short time to walk through. The property has been utilised in a number of different ways through the history of Norfolk Island and a history of the house and its occupants are contained within a room off the kitchen.

Worth a visit.
