  • Random collection of all sorts of machinery and items from the past. So much to see. Mr 11 just loved it! Especially enjoyed playing with the old phone system. Friendly curator on site. Clear...

  • Arrived with minimal expectations and had a very good two hours there. Our 9 year old son was particularly fascinated by the telephone exchange and had a great time ringing us on the different phones....  more

  • It was great to reminisce old times I'd forgotten about some of the things that were on display. I felt old but in a nice way. The volunteers are extremely knowledgeable loved it
  • We almost didn't go in because it look so un attractive from outside. We are quite suprised to find a very good collection of the past. Some of them still work. Too bad it was not look after well, probably because it doesn't generate enough money n the kind volunteers were doing it. I recon the Taranaki govt should support this place with their rate pay n make it a destinations for people to go. Really enjoy the whole experience otherwise.
  • This is a great place to look at and learn about the past covering vehicles, farm machinery, telephone services, printing methods, the search and use of oil and gas, home appliances, aeroplanes, the NZ airforce. A really great place to recall the past and chat with people who have used the machinery. A wee bit basic but very real.
  • Amazing Museum so much history to see. Double the time you expect to spend and you still won't see everything.
  • Amazing place. Highly recommend
