“One room with some stuff”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

Really nothing to miss if you do not go there. It is one room, the size of a standard one bedroom apartment that has hand made clothes and artefacts. My wife and I finished checking things out in about 7 minutes. Done.

“Under renovation - very little information”
Reviewed 16 July 2013

We saw some beautiful handcrafts and arts, but it was difficult to find much information about these. The centre is in the midst of major renovation and that may be the reason that our experience was so poor.

“Under Renovations”
Reviewed 1 July 2013

Went quite a long drive to see this attraction to find it was under heavy renovations.
It is a very large building and every bit has scaffolding.
They have a small room in the grounds where they have moved a few exhibits.
But it is really not woth a visit as it seems the original Centre was excellect.
Not sure when it would be operating again and I think you should phone ahead of your visit as it is disappointing to find the Centre all closed up. From the size of the building it must have been a great place and no doubt will be again when it is completed.
