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 Museum is a bit scrappy - but gives a really interesting story of the family from the UK and how their family grew in the area.

We visited on the long weekend on the Sunday morning. We had a blast looking through all the displays and exploring! $10 per adult I feel we definitely got our money’s worth and spent 2-3 hours here.

Went sunday long weekend and paid $10 for entry and expecting some education and good display but absolutely rip off place. It looks like someone's garage and put museum name on it. Only 4section of house which nothing much inside and don't waste money. I have seen so much better museum and settlers museum without ridiculous entry fee.

Stop at the falls 10 km before you descend into Kangaroo Valley. Bring your driving skills its a long and winding road both down to and out of Kangaroo valley.
The Museum is interesting, no staff at exhibits during the winter months ( self guided)
Places to eat along the main street.
Oops! we didn't see any Kangaroos

I was very surprised by how much information was in the museum. The entry fee was so cheap and there was a lot to see!

I especially enjoyed the suspension bridge

We loved our visit here. It was a last minute decision, but we were so glad we came. We will absolutely come back and will be bringing our visitors here in future. Very well set out, particularly enjoyed the story on the loudspeaker in the original settlers house. The bush walk over the suspension bridge was great, if we had more time we would have done the extended 'red' walk too. Highlight was meeting Owen the puppy - he was adorable, thanks for letting us gush over him :-)

The museum has its own parking next to the bridge. The walk through and along the several buildings and expositions is very nice, The house is fully decorated as well as several working sheds. Personally I found the roof sheet making machine most interesting. The video with explanation on how the telephone worked was unique as in othe r places you only see the apparatus, but no explanation on how it actually worked.

Yes, some tlc is needed but remember the hard working volunteers! They do really well. Most displays are accompanied by an audio or audiovisual explanation - all included. The entrance has a barrier which controls illegal parking - a good idea, in spite of what other reviewers might think
