This is like a personal collection and set-up on things that relate to the fantasy world: you can find animals, fairies, characters from several tales, and even a modeled locomotive system of the Manawatu railways. The staffs are so friendly and helpful. The kids really loved it.

Just the place - lots of moving dioramas for children of all ages run by enthusiastic volunteers. Well kept and worth the small fee.

This is a awesome place for children and adults, takes you back to your childhood. It is quite old, and the building has an uneven floor, so maybe elderly may find that difficult. Very friendly hostesses

It's based around childrens stories, nursery rhymes, and suchlike. I guess many kids thesedays won't know some... More

The fantasy cave is an excellent place to visit and to take your children. It has so much to offer and the volunteers who run the place do an excellent job. They point out all the interesting things to see in all the hidden spots. You could spend quite a bit of time here to see it all. Well worth... More

This Cave is a once only you will never see anywhere else. It covers very many nursery rhyme themes, model railway with uniquely designed setting, Santa in the preChristmas season, & much more. It occupies three levels of a section of a building and something for everyone, young and old

The Fantasy Cave is a place where all your childhood storybook and nursery rhyme characters can be seen in one place. It is all run by volunteers, who are ever so helpful. A magical place to take children of all ages, and adults who can appreciate the hours of work that have voluntarily gone into the place.

Where fantasy, nursery rhymes, and child's imaginations come to life. A memorable experience for all children, ran by volunteers and includes "story time" sessions in the holidays. To see the delight on the children's face when they see their bedtime stories come to life is a joy. A magical experience for the Grandchildren..
