This visit was combined with the transport museum. Great value loads to see, really excited three little boys and three big boy’s too!
The World’s Fastest Indian is amazing. If you haven’t seen the film with the great Anthony Hopkins you need to put it...More
Completely bizarre but totally cool--a giant hardware store with motorcycle treasures sprinkled about. Really enjoyed all of the displays and especially the descriptions that were provided. A special experience and I highly recommend stopping in (assuming you are interested in motorcycles and/or Burt Munro).
Now this is a hardware store with a difference. They have an extensive range of vintage motorcycles including an original Burt Munro 1920 Indian scout. A large store with bikes throughout and generously available to view for free. Do visit and stock up on any...More
What a store, what a museum, such history. In fact we went back the next day just to make sure we hadn't missed something. You could spend days in this store and never be bored. I don't believe I have ever seen a 'store' with...More
This is a fully functioning hardware store in the middle of town, but interspersed throughout are collections from one of New Zealand's racing icons, Bert Munro, along with several of his motorbikes and other cars and speedway cars/bikes. There's also a quirky collection of hammers...More
This is a must when visiting Invercargill. A very interesting collection of old vehicles and motor bikes, including the Worlds Fastest Indian. Set among the shelves and floor space of a hardware store makes this a most interesting place to visit.

It's on the corner of Dee and Leet Streets. Look for the prominent Hammer Hardware sign. You can park in Leet Street and use the store entry on that side of the building. The Indian and Bert's Velocette are beside each other...go straight ahead to the second cross aisle and the bikes are to the right, away from the Dee Street side but staff will direct you.
Make sure you also look for the contents of Bert's shed which are in another part of the store. As shown in the movie, they have been transported from the shed to the store intact.
