Our Museum is now under new full time Management.
We proudly took over the reins from the founding owners in March 2015 and have continued to work very hard to give our visitors an experience they will enjoy.
Together we have refurbished the on-site cafe to create a unique 1960's atmospheric environment to enjoy, complete with trolley bus and tram seating.
Our new cafe can seat 40 people and is perfect for functions and club meetings.
We offer barista Coffee (Underground coffee roasting Co.) and wonderful hot an cold food from our menu including a range of "Hillyers" Pies and "Rangiora Artisan" Bakery Pastries and Muffins.
