  • Not as neat and tidy as some of the photos show, the place is piled with bits and bobs of every imaginable kind. Bottles, dummies, toys, dentists chairs, records, books, and things I have no idea what...  more »
  • Fascinating place full of wonderful, memorable 'stuff' bringing back memories of many years ago. Roeli was very informative and told us how this began. Need a couple of hours in which to browse around...  more »
  • We arrived after reception was closed but found our room okay, it was a bit dusty and the other occupants weren’t very talkative but they’d possibly had a long journey. Lovely gardens, with roses, dah...  more »

  • Better than some museums - We had a really good time there. All started with a Demolition Business and Recycling. But now there is a kind of small town growing. Cute and bit creepy. But really nice! Really nice owner as well. And it's only donation based. So you decide how much you give. :)
  • The place is piled with bits and bobs of every imaginable kind. Bottles, dummies, toys, dentists chairs, records, books, and things I have no idea what they are. This place is probably not for little children as too many sharp edges, unprotected corners, holes in the floors, but as soon as you can trust them they will love this place. You can pick up and look at things, touch items that would normally be in a museum, flick through old books and explore the piles of junk that are everywhere. No fee to go in, but for the entertainment donate accordingly. There is a play area for young children in the back, and chickens & ducks roam free. This place is better than some of the museums I have been to.
  • I enjoyed my visit at Demolition world. Highly recommended! Hospital scene = my favorite.
  • Amazing collection of old house parts, doors windows and associated hardware. All sorts of other bits and pieces too.
  • AWESUM place to visit. Also I bought some Omarau stone so my visit was great that day
