“good but something missing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Without a doubt this is a Taranaki must, but sadly is missing the final touches that would bring in more visitors. From the outside it looks like a very long shed. Inside there is a muddle of interesting items roughly put into some sort of order. Sadly there is a great deal of information missing which won't help those who say, "What is that"?
Having said all of that, it's a great way to spend 2-3 hours and for just a few dollars, money well spent
