“A slice of history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

I wasn't expecting much when we popped in to see this house where Mansfield grew up but I was pleasantly surprised. The display was extremely well done and anyone who likes Mansfield' s writing will come away with a new understanding of her context.

“A taste of Wellington/NZ history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

Lovely cottage and grounds. NZ doesn't have a whole heap of history and due to seismic activity there is not a lot still standing. Well worth a visit.
