My partner loves old cars and machinery so he was in his element. It's not really my thing but I was entertained by the vintage cars and particularly one from the royal visit. Staff were friendly and the attraction is well worth the money.

Excellent museum of cars, tractors and machinery. Very helpful staff who was very keen to show my wife, still sitting in the car as she was over museums, the special early motor home on display. Very good selection of vehicles well worth the stop.

Good range of old vehicles especially out the back. Also saw some of their vehicles at the Rangitata Anzac Day at Rangitata Airfield

This is quite an interesting and well set out museum. The entry was $15 per person and I think this was rather expensive. There was an extensive display of tractors too as well as the cars.
