  • I enjoy seeing and reading about history and this place has lots of that on offer. Staff were friendly and accommodating.
  • Fun to step back in time. Though a bit run down
  • A great place to come and see history of Our country and life how it was. All the staff and volunteers were great.
  • 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.
  • Waste of money, I went in with my family only to find nothing open inside, We especially wanted to see the fire engine for my son, i told the lady this and she said that it would be open . So we paid the $20 each only to find it was closed, the only thing going was the tram. I was offered a ticket to come back the next day but we were going back home that day.
