Taranaki Pioneer Village

Open from 10am - 4pm during summer season. Check on-line for winter hours.

A unique outdoor museum in a 4.4 hectares park-like setting with more than 40 buildings, some authentic. Buildings are open to display items from the 1850 - 1950 era in a life-like setting of our pioneers. Take a nostalgic stroll through yesteryear and experience an outdoor museum presenting the life of Taranaki pioneers in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries – recall childhood memories and introduce ‘the good old days’ to the younger generation”. Take a ride on the "Pioneer Express" train.

The Pioneer Village outdoor museum also offers a beautiful venue for weddings, family and corporate functions with the Mangatoki Church, Harrison Function Centre, Village Green, the Court House and Opunake Railway Station. Onsite catering is available.

Picnic facilities available or enjoy the mouthwatering food at the on-site cafe.

Group bookings are essential (concessions apply) with tours available.
