“Big history for a little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

Wrecks, settlers, mutton birding, indigenous history... all in wonderful detail and supported with amazing artefects. Much history in the buildings themselves. Modern main building, everything presented well and organised. The local volunteer on duty the day we visited was vry knowledgable.

“Comprehensive museum of Flinders Is history”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

The museum is a collection of buildings capturing many facets of the island's history - and that of neighbouring Bass Strait islands. Tucked away in one room are dozens of folders on individual families, events, and specific aspects of the last 200 years.

“Furneaux Group History.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

Well worth a visit as you can and will learn so much.
If you have had a large or small connection to the Island in your life you may come back the next day as you realise there is so much information to rediscover you may find you haven't given yourself enough time.
Any first time visitors please look at the history here at the Museum as you will thoroughly enjoy it.
I believe a must do for any visitors and maybe some residents also?
You could spend hours here or a memorable 1-2 hour

“This is a "must see" if you go to Flinders”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

You could easily spend a couple of hours here. Do yourself and the volunteers a favour and get there at opening times.

You won't regret it.

“Excellent museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

Open on weekends and public holidays, Furneaux Museum offers visitors (and locals alike) the opportunity to explore some history on what happened to original settlements in Australia. As the generations pass, Australian will be grateful that this museum has collected a kaleidoscope of history worthy of recognition, a visit and a few hours wandering....great addition to Flinders Island.
