Visitors can view a large number of items, including sewing machines, tills, household  articles  etc. A perfect way to indulge in a bit of nostalgia with the family or friends.

The museum provides a fascinating view of some of the vast number of grocery brands in existence throughout the last century.


For those who are not familiar with this instrument, it is best described simply as a self-playing piano utilising perforated rolls of paper to play the notes. Other piano’s & instruments too!

We also have a collection of old  New Zealand telephones, including a small manual exchange  - no cell phones around then!
