  • Katherine Mansfield one of New Zealand's first excentric Woman story writers. The house where she grew up in. Can buy her books here and have some tea in the garden.  more »

  • Very good incite into the environment of her early years and then concludes in the last room upstairs with a documentary of her life. Well worth a visit.
  • The childhood home of KM restored faithfully in late 19th / early 20th century style. The video biography of KM is well worth viewing. Highly recommended. Has inspired me to read her work.
  • This is a great treat and a wonderful example of early colonial living in Wellington. It reminds me of National Trust sites in the UK and is a really charming place with fascinating history even if you're not too aware of Katherine Mansfield.
  • Nice place to visit even if you don't know closer Katherine Mansfield. Love old interiors but I was disappointed a bit about space upstairs - half of it was closed for visitors.
  • Useful landmark. Helped us navigate around the maze-like backstreets of wellington. Would use again.
