This is a wonderful display of history particularly for children to learn and older people to take a walk down memory lane. Inresting display of farming history. Friendly helpful staff that enjoy their occupation
On the outskirts of Matamata, a lovely collection of old buildings and artefacts. Note, it is closed on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Well preserved buildings, excellent displays and easy access. Spent a thoroughly enjoyable two hours there.
This museum surprised us by how much there is in it. It covers the early settlers in the area, farming and also about the Kaimai tunnel. Loved the way the house is set up and gives you a good look at pioneering life.
Lovely museum especially for those who have never lived on the land. A great story told by film, pictures, photo's old news items, especially of the Firth family. A complete village & farm in rural surrounds. Climb to the top of the tower. Magnificent.
The guides are very enthusiastic and will show you around this series of buildings which house relics of a past life in New Zealand including chapel, schoolroom and farming as well as the tower itself.
