What to do on a rainy day? Check for museums! (As museums are usually really worth visiting in NZ.)
We didn’t arrive with high expectations on that one. From the roadside you can just see a bunch of rusty bits and pieces. It turned out to be an unattended museum with entry by koha (donations), well maintained by the locals of Golden Bay. Plenty of old cars and trucks and even some historical goldmining equipment to view.
The most scary things are actually the warranty of fitness labels on these rusty vehicles. They indicated that many of the trucks were still in use just a few years ago!
