An amazing collection of toys, cars, motorbikes, farm vehicles and a couple of big pedal cars to try out. There is so much stuff, its hard to see everything. Worth a look.

Whilst visiting Wanaka we passed this museum and vowed to visit during our stay. What a revelation. The best $14 I have spent. The museum is crammed with toys , cars, motorbikes, lorries etc etc. Everywhere you look there are items that are so nostalgic. Good for adults and children. Apparantly it is the collection accumulated by one man. Quite extraordinary. If I had a little gripe it is that there is too much crammed in to see it all. An extension is on the go which should help that problem. Situates next to Wanaka airport there is a good view of helicopters and small planes taking off and landing. All in all a MUST visit

The place to head to to see all the toys you remembered from your childhood. Nice little cafe, plenty of room for kids to run about outside and even miniture cars to pedal about on.
