Taranaki Pioneer Village

Museum in Stratford

About 1km south of Stratford on SH3, the Taranaki Pioneer Village is a 4-hectare outdoor museum housing 40 historic buildings, with many dating back to the early 1850s. It’s very bygone-era and even a little spooky! The Pioneer Express Train is a good way to see it if your feet need a rest ($5 or $3 with entry fee). There's a cafe here, too.
