Nice house museum and just full of information, it was really interesting, staff are friendly, my only suggestion is to have bike racks available and easy to fun for tourists because area is awesome for biking and seeing the city. Very affordable price.

Visited the museum and did the evening ghost walk. The museum is quite interesting. The Ghost walk was ok. It was run by summer students reading a printed script.

Great example of a Victorian home & overflowing with history about our local hero Billy Bishop. Lots of interesting exhibits on each floor. Also Christmas is a good time to visit as is is decorated in period style.

I had long wanted to visit Billy's home and I was not disappointed. The home itself is quite lovely, the exhibits are well presented and the young staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Thoroughly enjoyed my visit.

In the house where Billie Bishop was born and raised, the exhibit included photos, original furniture, many airplane models, all well-described.

We visited this house while staying near Kemble and found it very interesting and well worth a visit. The young girl who took us around the house was very well informed.

There are stories that this home holds a lot of character and could be perhaps haunted. Regardless it is eventuful to venture through the home and learn all about Billy Bishop and what he did.

Excellent museum, entering the house is like stepping back in time. I am definitely going back for the Christmas special they do every year

I believe I recall seeing a wheelchair lift in the back room. This provides access to the main floor, but not sure about a lift to the top floor.
