This private museum is a must explore for those fascinated in the history of Norfolk Island. Each of the five rooms captures different experiences. Don't be fooled by its unassuming exterior.

If you are really, really into history and want to sit and read archives you would like this place, but otherwise don't waste your time and money. The place looks like hasn't been dusted in years and I couldn't get out fast enough.

This museum is one of several at Kingston and tells the story of the Bounty via many artifacts and by the end of this tour you will know all about the early history of Norfolk
