Fodor's Review

This eclectic collection includes Māori artifacts, farming and domestic implements from the pioneering days of the district, and implements used to dig for kauri gum. Rotating textile displays cover clothing dating to the late 1700s. There is also a display of a school dental clinic—what Kiwi children called the "murder house." Outside is a collection of old buildings, including a bushman's hut and an army hut used by Americans stationed at Warkworth in World War II.

This museum gives an informative overview of how smaller settlements were formed and how people lived in them.
