Promised so much, delivered so little. If I was a New Zealander I would be embarrassed. The village needs to be repaired, the native plants need some love and attention. It is unfortunate as the location and surrounding historical buildings and Pa are quite good.

Disappointed. $10 per adult entry fee. Replica huts were tired and some falling apart. Definitely needs an upgrade. Garden was overgrown which made some smaller items difficult to see. Wouldn't recommed paying the money. Took only 10 minutes to view.

A great place to visit and to see how the 'locals' lived in the early settler's day, a good comparison to the European settlement on the opposite bank of the river, the Mission House and the Stone House. I would recommend a decent pair of shoes/trainers as some inclines are challenging in beach shoes. On the whole well worth the... More

It a nice place to spend few hours with family. The location is quite beautiful and well maintained. The cafe situated in the village was excellent.

Worth a visit if you are staying on boi for a while. Located opposite stone store and kemp house. Useful for kids to learn through seeing tangible examples.

Paid $10 to see old ramshackle replicas of old Maori huts. The people there are rude and arrogant, ignoring visitors. The huts are falling apart and look as if they were abandoned 50 years ago. Don't encourage them by visiting, hopefully it will close down and stop giving the areas tourist sites a bad name.

Not too much to see - it is only a replica of what the village would have looked like though. Still a good insight into history of the area despite there being not much to see.

A very small museum with a few (newish?) artefacts followed by some rotting unmaintained fake village displays. Not worth the risk of walking up the tricky path
