    Stop in this nice Museum during our time in the corner. The Museum is very well maintained (the indoor and outdoor areas), many things to see, it is well laid out and well done. For those of my generation, it's like the little house on the prairie! There is one home plan for the visit we stayed awhile. One small detail: no documentation in french which prevented us to understand all of the information is not fully bilingual. Recommend anyway.

  • Stopped to stay over night. Wasn't able to snag a powered site, but provided bathrooms and a safe area to spend the night.
  • A real asset to Matamata a worthy visit...love this old time village and l recommend this tourist attraction to all my visitors
  • If you have a campervan and need a safe place to stay overnight while in or near Matamata - this is a great spot. Clean toilets plenty of parking.
  • Fascinating NZ history that often gets neglected. This place showcases kiwi history from how we farmed our land to trains and medical equipment back in 1800s. Well worth spending a couple of hours there
  • Great place to visit. Lots to see
