    An excellent museum showcasing aircraft from the First and Second world wars. Well worth visiting and a nice cafe attached.

    Beautiful arts and crafts gallery, amazing pieces by local artists and the dreamiest location right by a vineyard, chocolate factory and gardens. Perfect for buying small gifts too and all staff welcoming and friendly. Highly recommend a visit! :)

    A really good provincial museum. Provides the story of the wine industry in Marlborough from its inception too present. Love to the innovations the pioneers had to create alongwith the change in attitude to alcohol through history in NZ. Also enjoyed the Victorian section of the Museum. Outside is definitely worth giving time to look through Beavertown.

    My husband loved this. They had well over a hundred tractors, all but one runs. Two days a year all the tractors are driven around the grounds and there are some giants here! Amazing. The noise these big fellas make, the power, the history. One "New Zealand" tractor was created from parts. There are brands from all over. Metal wheels. Tracks. The guide, an older lady was bored, followed us around telling us stories. During the earthquake, the tractors were all rolling back and forth, coming alive for the moment. Volunteers maintain and fix these dinosaurs that broke the land, creating the farmland of today.
    Take the mechanic and let him (or her) have fun.

    Fran Maguire is not only a great potter but a true artist. Her work is inspiring. She has traditional functional ware that is beautiful and colorful, but she also has art pottery that is innovative and amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

    Blenheim isn't all vineyards, there are other aspects to this place too. We really enjoyed our visit here to this small but interesting gallery in the centre of town. There is a feature about the commemorations of the arrival of the European settlers and some of the many issues this raises especially from a Māori perspective. The exhibition features some stunning short films (it would be even better with some seating to watch these from).
    The small shop is excellent too.

    The gallery is newish it appears and there was some good art around the walls. the second room had the landscapes large and empowering. I enjoyed a oil paining of when dancing when you moved back you could almost see the motion within this photo. Well worth a visit.
