(TripAdvisor) This place was a brilliant , honest and interesting place to learn about the Norfolk Island History. This museum has no tourist trapping frills and fanfare, but what it does offer is an honest and spectacular way of portraying the raw history of the place. I especially loved the handwritten books and original photos and stories in them . I actually think this museum is a national treasure (TripAdvisor)
(TripAdvisor) A very interesting and comprehensive display of Norfolk Island history. Slightly out of town this is probably one of the most interesting, fascinating collections on the island. Your mad if you don’t see this place. Really worth a visit, (TripAdvisor)
(TripAdvisor) We spent over 2 hours quietly browsing this unique museum which crams in a vast collection of items reflecting Norfolk Island history. The items and topics are diverse and informative. It is no doubt the most comprehensive museum on the island and charmingly charismatic. Many displays reflect the age of the museum and rarity of the items. The considerable archives are a researches delight. The museum is crammed and could easily be doubled in size - but this adds only to its rustic charm and ambience. (TripAdvisor)
(TripAdvisor) This is the most amazing little museum but stuffed to the rafters with curiosities and history. Many of the items pertaining to Norfolk Island you’ll find nowhere else. Some may be horrified by the dated presentation, however for me this added to the curiosity and quirkinesses of the place, hence a “a museum in a museum” it’s the kind of museum one found on the mainland 50 years ago.

(TripAdvisor) We went here towards the end of our trip, but you should start here! The museum is a treasure, amazing records of early times, with photos of Island events. Things that tell of the life of the island. Hands on artifacts which all must be preserved and valued as an irreplaceable repository of Norfolk, and worth far more in educational and cultural value than anything else we saw on the island. Hopefully the true value of this resource is appreciated and preserved for following generations (TripAdvisor)
(TripAdvisor) You could get lost in this Museum for hours, This Museum is an absolute treasure to the island. Room after room jammed packed with memorabilia, antiques, pictures and bric a brac. Even if you don’t like museums this place will fascinate you. (TripAdvisor)
(TripAdvisor) This charming museum showcases life on Norfolk Island from early settlement through the years and offers a bit of everything. 5 rooms to explore and although not a polished display, it has charm and depth of exhibits worth seeing. One of the most interesting museums in the South Pacific. (TripAdvisor)
(TripAdvisor) Amazing History, this is your typical historical town museum. The cash register at the front door is almost worth the visit alone - one really appreciates the isolation of the past when you see the early dentist chair and foot operated drill. (TripAdvisor)
