The Tawhiti Museum is a truly unique enterprise. The creation of artist Nigel Ogle, its attention to detail is simply stunning.
Widely acclaimed as the best private museum in the country, the museum uses life size exhibits and scale models to present our heritage in a series of super realistic and engaging displays.
All these displays are designed and built on the premises in the 'Body Shop' and accompanying studios, which can be viewed as part of a museum visit.
Super realistic and spellbinding for all ages, you could easily spend a day looking through the museum, taking a ride on the bush railway or on a boat through the Traders and Whalers attraction, then follow up with delicious light meal at the "Wind in the Willows" styled Badgers Cafe
