This is a fabulous museum for a town of its size. It mostly covers the early days of the town. Not much on the Maori.

Thank you for your thoughtful review of our museum. We appreciate you taking the time and are so pleased that you enjoyed your visit here. See you next time! J

This place is amazing! Multi levels, historic installations replicating a village street, businesses, houses. So much memorabilia, photos, information. We didn't have long enough to cover it all comprehensively and were disappointed. Great gift shop as well.
