“great local museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

This is a local museum concentrating on the history of the Katikati area, especially the original settlement by Ulster immigrants in the late 1800s. There is also an interesting collection of Maori artifacts, and an extensive collection of old bottles.

“Fascinating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this volunteer-run museum. It is full of a huge variety of items telling the story of the lives of past inhabitants of the area. Our guide was charming, patient (because we spent such a long time looking at things!) and informative. As well as being able to view things we were also given demonstrations of how some of them worked. Really great. It is obvious that a lot of love and enthusiasm is going into making the museum so interesting. As a bonus, the on-site cafe produced delicious food.

I would definitely recommend this museum.

“Love the Roast Rolls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We have been here a few times as I just love their Roast Rolls. They have a variety of different meats all roasted. You can have a full roast meal or the way I like it as a roll. The price is reasonably good. It also has a big dinning area.

“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

It was the Arts Festival in Katikati with a program. The Museum was on the list and getting to the place there is a Cafe. Food was terrible and you wait very long for service, No it is a failure! Will not encourage people to go there!
