On our way from Wanganui to Wellington we had a stopover at this excellent Museum. It's the biggest museum for old vehicles in New Zealand and exhibits not only old cars but also motorcycles, fire engines, race cars and aircrafts.

The exponents are in a very good condition and some of them very rare. Opening hours are form 9 AM until 4:30 PM daily.
