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 very interesting and quirky place to visit.Lots of household goods,photographs,local history and toys and collections.

As well as vintage cars,motor bikes,farm machinery,tools, and all sorts of memorabilia.

All under cover and a great place to stop off and vist. Along the road from Coopers beach,a little of the beaten track so look for the signs.

Just north of Taipa with well-marked turnoff. Advertised on website as $10 each but now costs $15 each admission. Large collection under cover so suited to visit in all weather. Something to interest everyone – cars, tractors, engines, tools, sewing machines, etc.

We toured this large collection on a quiet day and I think many days are quiet. The collection includes vehicles, office machines, sewing machines, tractors, tools, and many more items.

On a rainy day what bette4r way to liven the nostalgic senses and be amused and reminiscing at the same time. Its mostly under cover where a massive array of stationary engines and vintage autos are waiting to be adored. If that’s not enough, and you hanker for something more domestic, there are plenty of household appliences to touch base with and cry out ‘my golly gosh, we used to have one of those!’

We stopped in here with out three boys, had some great old engines but our favourite was the piano that played itself whilst pushing the pedals and the grammar phones , the guy running the place was very helpful and played them for us sharing lots of interesting facts and information.
The family who owned the farm were quiet clearly passionate about the area and NZ history.
Kiwi eggs and old dentist chairs also on display an impressive array of vintage radios and more tractors I’ve ever seen in one place, great visit.

We enjoyed visiting this museum far more than we thought we would . Some wonderful objects on display that brought back many memories to both of us. In particular many of the old kitchen appliances, like bean slices, the first mobile phones etc

Definitely somewhere worth stopping at, children will enjoy it too.

As a local it's taken many years before this visit but with farming friends visiting we spent about 2 hours reminiscing from toys, irons, cars, tractors. Did not know Most bones could be found on our local beaches!

We were staying at Ahipara and saw this as a suggested place to visit on Trip Advisor. We rang to check it was open and were welcomed when we arrived. It is a fascinating place which displays years of dedication and hard work. We were there for about an hour and could probably have gone around again and seen things that were missed the first time around. Good value.

Came across this place by accident, drove passed, saw the sign and had to back up 100m (you can do that on rural roads).No one there but a mobile phone on a table (not attached) and a written message saying to use the phone to ring the owner. How's that for trust! Owner arrived 5 mins after our call and opened up. What a surprise there was something for everyone from a Double Six Daimler Limousine to a FIAT 500, From a Singer sports car to a low headlight Morris Minor. From Packard's to Chevrolets. Tractors, both wheeled and tracked from many manufactures covering over 70 years, including brands such as Oliver's that I had read about but never seen. Farm implements galore, including a fine selection of hand driven milk separators. And hand driven Benzene pumps.
Interested in Dentistry, there are chairs and treadle drills. Also a fine selection of surgical tools and early medicine containers. Don't recall so many different sorts of typewriters together before nor Radios and Gramophones. Musical instruments and kitchen machines are also well represented along with photography and cloths care. I could go on but best you visit and see for your self. You even get to meet and talk with the owner and thats the icing on the top.
