Description

Only 50 minutes drive north from Auckland, look out for our museum signs just south of Warkworth. There is a magnificent display of colonial history which is beautifully presented. There are numerous display rooms on the ground floor. On the first floor, there are re-created rooms of the 1920s a corner store, kitchen, bedrooms, sitting room, carpentry and blacksmith workshops and a wash house showing the furniture, clothing and the tools of yesteryear. Throughout the Museum there are clothing displays from 1890 to the 1950s. Features of the Museum setting are the magnificent McKinney and Simpson kauri trees standing in full view of the car park. The largest trees of their kind to be seen on the east coast of New Zealand, these giants are a reminder of the days long gone when the kauri was known as king of the forest. There are many exhibits to explore, such as The Working Machinery Exhibit on Wednesdays and walks through the native bush of the Parry Kauri Park. OPENING TIMES Summer hours 10am 4pm (NZ Daylight Saving) Winter hours 10.am 3pm (NZ Standard Time) Closed Christmas Day & Good Friday
