  • this was a lovely place to explore as well as seeing many many way that we lived 100 years ago. When I was little I got to go to a trip there and we made some bird houses.
  • Pioneer displays are interesting lots for the children to see and learn about. The Waka and early paintings of Maori are a feature. My boy loved it here.
  • A great view into the past, interesting artifacts and fairly well curated despite being in a temporary location. Small gift shop as well.
  • Good to look around
  • Awesome. Kids really enjoyed the Moa's skull mystery. Definitely worth a visit if you've got a few hours to spare.
