This fascinating museum is one of the largest private collections in the world with four major buildings housing over 600 vehicles, twenty aircraft and 60,000+ toys and 1,000’s of miscellaneous items.
The Museum is the result of one man’s dream and over fifty years of collecting; it’s a 20th century treasure-trove.
The transport collection includes vintage and classic cars, fire engines, military vehicles, tractors, trucks, motorbikes, heavy construction equipment, buses, boats and much more.
The toys are a child’s dream. There are thousands of diecast models, meccano, dolls and teddy bears, tin, windup, clockwork and battery powered toys. It is also home to New Zealand’s largest display of Barbie and Star Wars memorabilia.
A real nostalgia trip.
