What started out as a hobby has become widely regarded as the best private museum in NZ. Tawhiti Museum is an impressive & engaging visual history of Taranaki. Life-size exhibits & scale models are used to capture the past in super-realistic displays. All displays are created onsite in the ‘body shop’ - part of the museum visit. Further on-site attractions include Traders & Whalers - a unique & innovative historical presentation of the Taranaki coast in the 1800s with an underground canal boat ride; Tawhiti Bush Railway – a dramatic historical presentation of the logging railways in Taranaki; Farmpower Hall – a collection of farm machinery depicting their evolution from the 1930’s & Mr Badger’s Cafe – offering fresh home-baking & coffee.
