This museum has added displays since we were last there. There is an amazing recreation of the equipment used for felling trees, transporting logs, milling lumber and collecting Kauri gum. Life-like mannequins represent local settler families. The Otamateo Boarding House is a two-story replica based on the boarding houses in the early 1900s. There is a pioneer post office and church and school, and an amazing exhibition of carved and specimen pieces of New Zealand amber. We spent several hours there and were delighted. It is a very professional museum.
