Wasn't sure what to expect from this museum but it was well worth the visit. Great displays, all excellent quality, very informative. The horse buggys downstairs were impressive. Some excellent books too. and free wifi.
Great museum. Kids enjoyed the 'hands on' experience. Loved the exhibits. Would have spent more time here if I had the chance. Don't miss out on seeing this attraction on your visit to Arrowtown.
We called into the museum primarily as a result of it raining heavily outside. We're glad we did, as the museum had many informative displays that showed the history of the area over the past two hundred years or so. It took us about 45...More

Worth a stop if you're in Queenstown or Arrowtown. The area has a fascinating history that is well presented in the museum and kept me engrossed for a good couple of hours!
We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your visit. See you again soon! J
Simple review, so much to see and do, don't waste your time, just go. Great info on the early history of the area and plenty of exhibits to ponder over.
A report of an engrossed 12 year old is a huge compliment! We are so thrilled that you enjoyed our museum so much. Thanks for letting us know! J
The family thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Good to see everything is well preserved for all generations to learn and appreciate.
Thank you for your review. We are so pleased that your family all enjoyed our museum. See you next time! J
I loved this museum. I attended with my son on a reasonably busy Saturday and we were both caught up in the history of the town but also pre history of local wildlife and the Moa in particular. The sets were great and realistic. Well...More
