Museum
M44***33This museum is located in Queen Elizabeth Park, where you can take a retro train to the Whareroa Coast. The railcars on display in the museum were all actually used in the 1920s and 1930s, and it was not until 1960 that they withdrew from the stage of history. It should be noted that the museum sometimes suspends the operation of the small train for power maintenance. It is recommended to call in advance or check the operation on the official website.
