Viewing the fastest Indian memorabilia after having been to E Hayes & Son was a fitting finale. Parking was a dream at the museum. the tuatera display was really interesting.

The museum is really interesting and free. Well worth a visit so learn about moa’s, the tuetara, the Indian motocycle speed record set on Otara beach, the remote NZ islands history and wildlife.

Great museum with fantastic tuatara viewing and of course the Burt Monroe story. Great cafe at the museum and the jewellery for sale are well priced and attractive.

Fantastic, love the tuatara there, exhibits are great and Museum is fabulous.
Always take visitors there that come down to visit and they have awesome things to say too. Also been right next to Queens Park is a bonus, beautiful grounds.

Really enjoyed the roaring forties exhibition, enjoyed the food in the café and the shop had a variety of items to purchase which weren't too expensive and the staff were friendly and helpful
