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.

Absolutely LOVE this place! I could have stayed for hours more. Imagine youve gone back 100 years and youre exploring through the town, all inside the homes, businesses and factories, thats this place! Completely run and maintained by volunteers and everyone looks so happy to be there. Beautiful customer service. I highly recommend people come here, look through history and support the volunteers that do an awesome job here.

I was astonished to see the wonders of this museum - interactive and alive. The workshops are displays and you can take part in some of the activities of this awesome attraction. It showcases the artifacts and implements of the early settlers and many other little treasures. Visit the steam section where machines are running, spin the handles and turn the wheels as provided.

They even have a live forge with a young blacksmith who was so keen to show what he was doing. One dad decided to help hammer away on the anvil and it was simply stunning to see everyone cheer him on. Children can play and run around and everyone can ride on a narrow gauge train.

Do not miss this one - it deserves a rating of 10

the only poor thing about this is it's only open two days a week, which is a total shame as this is a brilliant local museum. Heaps to see and do, if a little disorganised, but well, well worth it ..... a total must do in Rotorua

Great museum, full of interesting displays that chronicle a range of different activities and lifestyles from New Zealand’s past. We really appreciated the ‘Home made’ aspect of the place, it truly embodies the kiwi DIY ethos. Lots to do for kids, the hand pump system is fantastic, and my kids (10-16) all enjoyed it. Plus who doesn’t love a miniature train?! The volunteer staff were very friendly and knowledge. Definitely worth heading out from the standard Rotovegas tourist traps and do this instead!

Great place to visit. A labour of love for the dedicated people who maintain the many machines and displays. A great trip down memory lane and further. Will be back for sure as you need a great deal of time to look at the many areas to fully appreciate what is kept there.

Didnt find this overly exciting. Son loved the train but other than that didnt find too much to keep us entertained for very long.

I didn't know this place existed but it is a wonderful find. Step back in time - the houses are as they were back in the early 20th century and the water pump and forge all are working with staff there who show how things worked back then.

Totally run by volunteers, this free museum is a wonderful place to visit to get the real feel of how it must have been. Check out the forge with the blacksmith hammering away making things just the way they used to. Enjoy
