“Wow!”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

The Coach House is in a huge warehouse on the outskirts of Feilding and the plain exterior gives nothing away as to the delights in store. It has recently moved here and has been very well done.The size and range of the collection is huge - from lots of horse-drawn carriages to farm implements and John Deere vehicles, as well as exhibits which tell the story of pioneer life in the area. Children can climb up into a stage coach, make a water wheel work and examine many other things as well. The work that has gone into this by local volunteers is truly impressive and there are some wonderful stories there. Highly recommended for all ages.

“Mind boggling.”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

The Coach House has a collection of beautifully restored early farm vehicles, tractors and machines and its huge!! The staff are volunteers and they all get completely immersed in the restoration process and ha. Ve great knowledge to impart. If you want to find out about how modern New Zealand was formed this is a treasure trove of great stories told by passionate people. Every visitor to New Zealand should see this.
