Fiordland Vintage Machinery Museum

The Fiordland Vintage Machinery Museum has as its mission statement, "Protecting history for future generations". This history is displayed in the museum's exhibits which include over 60 working tractors, a selection of early road graders and motor bikes, a massive collection of early machinery, a fully operational blacksmith shop and displays of Te Anau's early history including the first telephone exchange, Te Anau's first school building and various early history memorabilia.

Located at Te Anau, Southland, half way between Queenstown and Milford Sound, you'd be silly not to stop off and stretch your legs and visit this museum on your way through! There you will have the opportunity to sit on the seat of an old 1950's Massey Ferguson tractor, to learn something about how old machinery works, to talk with those who have carefully restored old machinery to working order and learn more about the local history of the Fiordland, Te Anau region, while taking the time to rest and relax.
Admission is a donation-based entry fee of $10 per adult & kids are free. Open daily - Winter (limited hours), Summer (9am to 5pm) - look for the windmill on the corner.

Activities on offer:

- Viewing of a wide range of old machinery
- Learning about the restoration and maintenance of old machinery
- Learning of the history of Fiordland/Te Anna
- Rest and relaxation
