  • Great museum with very detailed information and photos of the original settlers. Not much about the Maori who lived there when they arrived though.
  • We stumbled across this place accidentally but it was well worth the visit. We learnt a lot about the Scottish people who migrated to the area in the early to mid 1800s.
  • Really informative and well laid out. Video of the history was worth watching. Quite small but full of interesting artifacts, photos etc. Tells a powerful story of Scottish migration to NZ
