This cottage is centrally located and what a treasure it is. It has wonderful historical pieces and is incredibly informative. Well worth a quick visit to gain some wonderful knowledge and appreciation of this historical place.

A small cottage with the few minutes required to read the placards and appreciate the exhibits. Worth while stop. Hours are sort of hit and miss so keep an eye out when walking past.

I really enjoyed finally discovering this cottage on the inside. It was larger than I'd expected, and provided a genuine feel for what life at that time must have been like.

It's a good thing that this cottage has been preserved & not altered as its one of the oldest buildings in the region. There s a lot of information within the building if you're interested in reading further. They have costumes & articles on display...More

Lovely to see this still in middle of all the new buildings, remember it being moved here when we lived there.

Great stone building. Nice to see this building preserved. The young gentleman tried his best to help us looking for a family ancestor.

A cute little place to visit if you happen to be going past and have a spare 5 minutes, but probably not worth going out of your way to see until you are particularly interested in New Plymouth's early settler history.
