Pioneer Room

Originally the Dining Room and now housing the archaeological explorations of Shane Burke, from diggings undertaken at ‘Peel Town’, displaying materials these pioneers, brought from England nearly 200 years ago.

This room also displays some of the first furniture to arrive in the new colony, belonging to Captain Armstrong, and arriving aboard the Gilmore in 1829.

Some of the artefacts reflect travelling, writing and seafaring equipment, and early musical instruments.
