Was a fantastic day out and the vehicles were simply stunning. The group consisted of 2 adults, a 14yr old and an 8yr old. The condition of the cars was amazing and the themed toilets were a great laugh!
Had a wonderful lunch at the cafe and all the food was amazing. Childrens menu was available.
Would definitely reccomend to somebody who is into cars and trucks as there is a wide range of displays. Big trucks, cars, a Volkswagen section, tractors and more.

What a fantastic collection of vehicles and other memorabilia. A real testament to Bill Richardson's passion and restoration of some remarkable vehicles. The layout of vehicles meant you could see all sides and inside and not crowded in at all. The building layout meant you were always surprised at to what was around the corner! Personally, I am not a particular motor enthusiast (many in my group were), but I would not have missed this display for anything and I would go back again in a moment.

This is the most astounding collection of cars, trucks and general road transport memorabilia. I would recommend that any vehicle enthusiast could make a trip to Invercargill just to visit this museum. It’s almost a pity, not to take anything away from Invercargill, that this is not domiciled in a more populous Centre such as Auckland or Sydney, it so deserves patronage.

Thank you for your kind words. Bill Richardson Transport World was the first of several attractions opened by tourism hub Transport World here in Invercargill (the others being Classic Motorcycle Mecca, and Dig This Invercargill). We are proud born-and-bred Southlanders and we are pleased to be able to showcase the south's wealth of history to visitors from outside of the region. Luckily, we're just a hop and a skip away from Auckland now that Air New Zealand offers direct flights to the beautiful city of Waihōpai! We hope to see you again here in the south sometime soon.

From the moment we walked in we could see this was something special. The collection of cars and memorabilia was huge. The care that has gone into the restoration of these items is immense. You really do need a good couple of hours to cover everything. Would totally go back again.

What an amazing tribute to Transport. There is everything from the first cars in the 1900's to Japanese cars in the 80's, to a VW combi display and Goodbye Pork Pie display. For the ladies world of wearable art and wedding dresses over the last century. Fantastic array of trucks!! All presented in very clean facilities. Cold in winter so wrap up.

Such a wonderful collection of transport history, from big trucks and tractors to rally cars and bulldozers. All beautifully displayed in big sheds, with a little history about each vehicle.
Allow at least a couple of hours for a quick look or all day if you are into anything transport.
A definite must see while in Invercargill.
The sheds can be quite cool in winter.
