The Amazing Panorama & Captain Bligh, Myth, Man & Mutiny Experience


Discover the amazing story of Norfolk Island in this charming museum. The Bounty Museum is a treasure chest of history, an Aladdin’s cave full of fantastic collections, excellent learning resources and inspiring information stretching back to 1788. The Bounty Museum is the original museum of Norfolk Island with all the artifacts and memorabilia donated by the local community and chronicles the history of the island and provides visitors with an intimate and informative glimpse into life on Norfolk Island during this time. The Museums Captain Bligh Myth, Man and Mutiny experience included in the Bounty Museum entry is a triumph of endurance, navigation and leadership….. Cast adrift in the South Pacific, Bligh and his men seemed to face certain death. 19 men packed into the launch, which was only 23ft long and a little more than 6ft wide. Supplies were only enough to last that many people, on normal rations, for five days. The journey would take 48 days. In a remarkable feat of leadership, Bligh sailed the heavily overloaded Launch to safety across 3600 nautical miles of open sea from Tonga to Timor, in the East Indies. This journey has been described as one of the greatest boat survival voyages of all time, a triumph of endurance, navigation and leadership against extraordinary odds. Experience the reality of this grueling journey through some of the worlds most remote and unforgiving seas. Uncover the secrets of survival and get a closer understanding of Bligh’s epic feet. After this you will be taken to experience one of Australia’s top tourist attractions, the 360° panoramic painting ‘Fletcher’s Mutiny Cyclorama’. Admire Norfolk’s diverse artistic talent at the adjoining art gallery & gift shop. Ranked fifth in the top ten tourist attractions in Australia by Trip Advisor, Fletcher’s Mutiny Cyclorama transports you to the eighteenth century and immerses you in the dramatic story of the Norfolk people including the Bounty Mutiny.
