  • One of the best places in New Zealand. Great opportunity to take a look on the history
  • Very interesting place but the some of the staff clearly don't want to be there because they have no pride and put no effort in
  • Perfect place to spent whole day especially with kids. Thanks
  • We really had a great day here, it was like stepping back in time to how life was for the early settlers. It is worth more than one visit. We also enjoyed having lunch in the cafe attached to the place.
  • Amazing experience here - great insight into the history and getting right into it and feeling what it was like. The kids (2 and 5) loved it too! :)
