“A lovely museum”
Reviewed January 6, 2014

This museum is well worth visiting if you are in Raglan. It is nicely laid out and the exhibits appear to be well cared for. The surfing exhibition is well done and very interesting. The location is great since it is next to the Information Centre and right in town.

“Nice.”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

This is still fairly new so not packed with exhibits but enjoyable and interesting. I particularly liked the telephone display, the switchboard is similar to ones I used in offices in the 60's but older. The surf exhibition is good. Well done. We are on holiday from England and our son lives and surfs here.

“Fun little town”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Even if you are not into surfing you will enjoy this little tourist town. It has a lot of character with plenty of shops and restaurants.
