Very interesting and evocative visit to this historic inn. The painted room is well worth a visit and a chat with the guide. Loved the aim of revealing the history and tenants of the house.

A great little Museum that shows the various building techniques by the first Europeans and going forward. They have glass exhibits on the floor so you can see the foundations. The tour guides were excellent and there was a lot of literature available as well.

This place has had many incarnations and one of the fascinating parts of the exhibitions was listening to the ghosts who had lived there.
