Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A surprising find.
I was in town for the weekend visiting family and decided to look up a morning activity, this looked like something I'd enjoy and wow. I was right.

So much technology packed into a small site. Each warehouse is themed and so interesting.

I'd highly recommend a stop off for a couple of hours - I would mention if you have small children be sure to watch them while visiting the exhibits.

Well worth a visit. There was so much to see and appreciate. We were impressed by the range of things to view. So many cool old fire trucks and cars.

We hadn’t planned to stop here, but with some time to spare in Gizzy, we thought we’d visit. We were blown away by the sheer amount of artefacts here - from literally all sectors of everyday life of our recent past. Memory lane, good and bad, inspiring and interesting. Highly recommend.

Really great walk down memory lane, especially telling my daughter about stuff long obsolete, especially the domestic appliance area.

Laid out across half a dozen large sheds, the ECMT is a wonderfull trip down memory lane or into a forgotten world.
Most exhibits are ‘as is, where is’ leaving the overall narrative to the viewer to work out. Not so much curated as collected and cared for.

It demonstrates historic things about this gisborne city and put up for display. Not so interesting if the city is not so personal to you.

Like so many museums of the genre this museum has an amazing amount of "stuff", much of which is interesting and has a personal connection - the sort of car I once owned, the computer that I first used and so on. However it is apparent that the museum is poorly funded and probably struggling for volunteers.
However, that said it is inexpensive to visit and occupied an interesting couple of hours as we wandered around from shed to shed.
If you enjoy such places it is well worth a visit.

An amazing collection if you look past the untidy overcrowded items in some areas.
Many things to remind me of my youth.

$10 for adults, $ 5 for oldies like me and very cheap for children, well worth while.

An awesome and interesting old museum. A great place to take the kids and they were allowed to climb into the old fire trucks and cars! We spent a couple of hours here as there was so much to see. Cool things for the adults to see too. Friendly volunteers running the place and very cheap entry for kids and students, highly recommended.
