I went on board as it used to be the "Euterpe" bringing immigrants to New Zealand from England in the 1870s. I wanted to see what conditions were like as I am writing a family history in which my family sailed from England to NZ in 1875. The Star of India is very interesting and well set up with the details of its history. I gained a lot of perspective from just being able to see what the dimensions were like and how the shop would have functioned in that role as an immigrant ship. For other visitors, it provides a very good review of how trading was done or the transport available. whatever your reason to see it, the Star of India is a great visit.
