“Great for the Kids”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Rainy day camping, we took the kids to the Owaka Museum. We were very surprised. The Owaka Museum is fantastic. Very well put together and thought out. Very up to date design. Hands on for the kids. Really interesting displays. A lot of bigger towns have a lot to learn from a little museum on the Catlins. Kids for free, $5 charge for adults
