The exhibiton brought it all back, well what we remember of the film.
A smashing museum well worth a visit, what with Henry, Burt and the antartic section it's great.

This is the best hardware shops I have been in not just hardware but gifts and other things and then there's the old motor bikes, cars etc and seeing Burt Munro's Indian motor bike was something special.

Stepping back in time. If you enjoy engines, old cars and motorcycles you'll enjoy your visit here. For the lady's they have a gift shop too.

E Hayes & Sons is a great store - great in variety of goods, great in size and great in customer service.

I like to walk through it to see new goods and historical bike, car and tool displays. The wall of neatly arranged tools for sale is extensive - a tradesman's dream.

This family owned business has informed and friendly staff and shopping there is a pleasure.

The Indian is in a hardware shop and there's no charge to look at it or take photo's it's not often you get so close to history there is a model at the museum but it's not the same as the real thing
