At what passes on Lord Howe for a major road junction, this museum has an interesting if somewhat random display on local history, taking in whaling, wars and the flying-boat service, and an engaging, more modern room on the local environment and conservation efforts, presented with flair. There's also a souvenir shop and a tourist-information desk. Donations are appreciated.

Great wi-fi strength, too.
