What a great place to view vehicles and farm equipment from days gone by. So many sheds to look through so allow plenty of time so you dont miss anything, great information from the door men, who enjoy sharing information on the displays

We came upon this museum after an unplanned stay in Geraldine ( poor weather forecast for the mountains ). At first appearance, it is not clear just how extensive this museum is. One exhibition room can be seen from the road but behind, there are 3-4 buildings which house the collection. There are cars, tracked vehicles and agricultural tools but... More

Having a weekend break from Christchurch we went to the museum as we have always wanted to visit but never done so (usually passing through). Amazing range of cars and machinery on display. Well kept exhibitions and impressive to see.

Very impressed by the number and condition of the vehicles on show. I was able to imagine my great grand parents driving around the area prior to the turn of the last century

After living not far from Geraldine, I thought I must go and see what people are talking about with this museum in Geraldine. Being a car enthusiast I was not disappointed with the awesome display of cars, trucks, tractors, machinery etc. There was something everywhere you looked and it certainly filed in an afternoon quite easy.
