“Surprising quality in a small town”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

The Lady Denman is worthy of an attraction in a large city, the fact that it is in a small accessible village and so professionally presented and run is outstanding.

“Brilliant attraction advise”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

We stopped in here on a recent trip to Jervis Bay to find out information about the fleet review and tall ships, staff advised us about a firework display that evening which we would have missed, very helpful visitors information centre inside the museum.

“Surprise!”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Recently I visited the Lady Denman Museum at Huskisson. I have holidayed in this area many times but had never been to the museum. What a gem! There were many interesting local displays that showed the history of the area but the jewel in the crown was the Lady Denman herself. What an experience to walk the decks of this ship and to read the story of her restoration. The walks around the ground are wonderful and it was delightful talking to the volunteers who work there. A must for everyone.
