  • Interesting piece of history. A little gem hidden away in Picton. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Went during Maritime Festival so entrance was by gold coin donation. Definitely a great place to visit and see the last remaining convict ship.
  • Didn't expect much, so was delighted to find well set-out exhibition, lots of info, great ops for photos and access to inside and outside of hull. The Edwin Fox deserves more backing from sport- mad kiwis, it's a gem.
  • Interesting bit of history. The documentary has a boring story teller tho...not very energetic.
  • A great little museum
