Visited during school holidays. Weather was a bit cold so it was very quiet! The park is interesting and gives a good idea of a settler town. There were a couple of activities in offer for children. We lost interest fairly fast though. Price was ok and seemed fair.

Well worth the drive and visit. The people who work there an d those in character of the era were knowledgeable and interactive. Was great to see ride the steam locomotive.
Parking was the biggest issue, but enjoyed the walk to the entry.

Well worth visiting if you are in Christchurch

Thoroughly enjoyed walking around this historic village. It's huge! It has one of everything. The tram ride was fun and informative too.

We went with three young children on a bleak winter's day, and we and the children had an enjoyable couple of hours. The cosy restored house had fires burning and a resident guide who welcomed us warmly, showed us around, told us the history, and engaged well with the children. The tram ride was another big hit with the children (and interesting to us adults too). The driver was another excellent guide, and again great with the kids. There were many interesting exhibits. We were impressed with how well-kept the facility is and with how attractive the park is generally (the backdrop of the Port Hills is lovely). We could have spent longer there, and we hope to return.
