Mt Bruce Pioneer Museum

The Mt Bruce Pioneer Museum is an intriguing treasure trove of rural relics, just a few kilometres from Masterton.

Try out the hands-on working displays, and explore the huge shed packed with everything from dolls to books, gramophones and a pedal-operated milking machine - much of it restored by owner Henry Christensen. It's the perfect rainy-day destination for curious families - and a great side-trip from the Pukaha National Wildlife Centre.

The museum is on State Highway 2, 18km north of Masterton, and 10km south of Pukaha National Wildlife Centre.
