  • 我們很幸運, 當天去門票竟然半價而且還有火車可坐, 裡面很多以前古老村落的東西可以看: 飛機、消防車、各式交通工具、印刷廠... 最好玩是介紹有關消防東西的倉庫, 有消防員的服飾可以給小朋友穿, 還有一台小型"消防車"讓他們開, 他們玩的非常開心, 根本不願意離開~

  • 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!
