#1 of 7 in Things to do in Feilding
Feilding's Museum is home to an outstanding collection of rural NZ heritage, showcasing over 140 years of history. Enjoy a fascinating historical journey through the lives of our early settlers, their horse-drawn vehicles, farming machinery and heritage.

Through the use of historic vehicles our story is told with collections including: Maori & the early Manawatu natural landscape, Early European Settlement & Land Development, The Horse-Drawn Era, The impressive and fully restored Crawshaw Collection of John Deere Tractors & Ancillary Machinery, The Spall Collection of rare tractors & stationery engines. The very beginnings of New Zealand's sheep and dairy farming industry are explored with displays of early milking machines and a working replica woolshed display.

The Museum building also houses the Feilding & Districts Community Archive where photographs, community and club papers, and family histories tell the story of the people.

A small library of books relating to the collections and Manawatu is slowly being built up.
