I really enjoyed visiting this place - the staff were friendly and helpful. The information was easy to follow and interesting and I would definitely recommend this place to other people. (Just a word of warning - it is easy to walk past on the street, so keep an eye out for it when you visit)
Travelling with a friend who has read and done a study on Katherine Mansfield for school so we thought we would check this out. Was very hard to find the house as there wasn't many signs and was not clearly labeled on a map. When we got there we were greeted at the door by a lovely staff member who... 更多
We were not familiar with the works of Katherine Mansfield - so we visited the home more for a peek into an old home. There was a 40+ minute video you can watch in one of the rooms that provides an overview of her life. We watched about 10 minutes of that. There are only a few pieces of furniture... 更多
We have lived in Wellington for over 20years and went here for the first time in the weekend. This is an excellent example of historical Wellington.

Great to read about this important NZ author or sadly died so young. To walk through her home and learn about family life before she left for overseas and to read material about her latter life was very interesting indeed. It is very well looked after and cared for.

This museum is a little hard to find, but it's a pleasant ramble through the Botanic Gardens and Thorndon. It's a well preserved Victorian house with enthusiastic staff. You'll enjoy it if you like literature, history and architecture.
I would recommend visiting at your own leisure rather than a guided tour. Our guide was very informative but did not give our group a chance to look around as he was swept up in sharing his knowledge and trying to sell his books.
This house is now tough to find - there's a freeway that cut it off from the city. Access is by the overpass from the embassy district and round a corner where it looks like any other entrance on the street. Once you find it, it is a tight and well-maintained attraction, an old colonial house with all the features... 更多
