Excellent visitor centre for anyone passing through. Educational for all ages, can't imagine anyone not finding it at least "quite interesting". Free tasting of different honeys and good souvenir shop.

Free entry and even if you only spend 15 minutes you will learn lots.

My 5 year old loves this place. There is a lot of educational displays and hands on activites. You get to see a working hive (and you may even spot the queen), see an excellent video on homey production AND sample the many different variaties of honey that Arataki produce. Lovely gift store too
