Children and Whānau

Both inside and out, there are things for kids to discover. Inside explore the house, can you find the doors that open in half? Outside, there is plenty of room to stretch little legs on the spacious lawn, surrounded by large trees for shade. Traditional games, including croquet and horseshoe throwing, can be provided on request. A children’s trail is also available just ask our staff.

Things to remember

We care for some important taonga (treasures) in our collection and our heritage buildings have lived a long life, so some rooms or items in the house may be off limits at times for conservation and maintenance.

Some rooms may be dimly lit depending on the weather and time of year.
