  • Fascinating to learn more about early New Zealand history, and especially such an important event as the first frozen meat shipment.
  • A wonderful slice of history. Well preserved by a group who obviously take great pride in their role. The buildings are well maintained and the historical information is easy to view and understand. I visited as part of Oamaru's Victorian festival and hourly enjoyed my visit. I believe the buildings are available for events such as weddings and I could see that it would be a special place especially with accommodation so close in Oamaru. I would recommend this site to others.
  • I went with most of my family of 8 and I found staff members full of knowledge and able to answer questions we had
  • Great historical site. Friendly staff.
  • Full of history, full of everything well presented
