I took a visitor from Thailand to see this amazing compact museum with so much to see read and enjoy. He enjoyed it and had his camera out constantly ...One cannot but be impressed and somewhat affected by the trials and hardships endured by those early settlers . A great presentation all round and I am proud to show my Grand father's Gum collection off too !

Thank TerryRT

A wonderful presentation of the Scottish landing in Waipu with some outstanding items. Everyone was friendly and helpful, the gift shop was great, bathroom facilities very nice. A great stop.

This museum involves a 2 k detour off state highway 1 and is well worth the effort. Is shows the history of the immigrant settlers who were Scots in a compact and well laid out display.

A really interesting story, told well; the displays and interpretation are elegantly designed and attractively presented. This museum is a must-see, rain or shine. And do leave time for the shop, which is really good - it carries a number of fabulous items from NZ's craft experts.

Then turn left out of the museum, cross the road diagonally towards the pharmacy 200 metres away and enjoy excellent coffee in the 'cafe deli' ..... didn't have one, but the pasties looked delicious.

Waipu has a positive vibe.

It was so well set up and so much to read and see. It was all about the early settlers and their experiences. Well worth a vist.
