Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The King Island Museum holds an extensive collection of artefacts that tell a detailed story of the island. The exhibition is divided into themed rooms such as natural history, shipwrecks and agriculture. We were shown around by Ruth who gave us lots of information and told us some interesting anecdotes.
The view of Currie Harbour from the path between the museum and the lighthouse is beautiful.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to King Island. My wife's grandparents farmed on King Island for around 40 years leaving in the early 80's, so this was a bit of a trip down memory lane. While the opening hours were restricted due to Covid, Luke opened up for us and very kindly had prepared some news clippings, pictures, etc sharing the involvement of wife's grandparents in the King Island community. The museum itself is fantastic and really provides a valuable and interesting insight into the history and people of King Island. The building is one of the original Currie lighthouse keepers cottages and each room has a different theme including Flora and Fauna, the many shipwrecks, agriculture and island life in general. The personal highlight is the Netherby room which house the original light from Cape Wickham lighthouse - close to 100 years old, brought back to the Island from WA about 8 years ago and re-assembled by hand by two locals without any instruction manual - an incredible feat. Luke is a font of knowledge and well worth putting aside a couple of hours to meander through the museum and grounds.

A wonderful exhibit with so many items and fascinating stories. Again, like the Historical complex you could spend lots of time taking in the relics of the past.
