Really is the best small museum in NZ. Very interesting, well presented and a lot to look at. We spent quite a bit of time here learning a part of history we didn't know. The volunteers were also very friendly and helpful in pointing out things of local interest. Recommend you make the stop if you're passing by.

The museum tells a unique story of a great migration from the Highlands of Scotland by way of Cape Breton to Waipu. The volunteers are mainly descendants of the migration and their knowledge of the history is great. Well presented and interesting array of exhibits makes this the best small museum I have had the pleasure of visiting.
