  • Ferrymead Heritage Park provides a full day of exploration, learning and entertainment. There is so much to explore and see. I highly recommended visiting on a Steam day to take a few rides on the steam train. If you're a local visitor the annual family pass is an amazing deal.
  • Amazing museum, kids love it and they have awesome events days foe young and old to injoy
  • A great place to educate children or just to see what it was like living in those times etc.
  • We had a wonderful time here. The staff were lovely especially the receptionist. The place was just wonderful to take grandchildren and other family members.
  • Great place and lot of fun!
