    Don't miss the dessicated rats which were trapped in the floorboards, in room 1. Or the replica hammocks you can lie on, on the top level

    Excellent value for your entry fee, and make sure you try a hammock.

    A must! Very interesting and educational. Free audio guide with the A$10 entry fee, so worth it. Don't miss the 1:45 pm guided tour. Try the hammocks.
