Are you soaking up the history of the North Island? Why not pay a visit to the Tawhiti Museum on your travels and discover more about the South West of the Taranaki Province! Add this to your stack now to dive into an experience filled with heritage and entertainment!
The museum is separated into a series of differently themed galleries, each of which uses scale and life-sized models as well as artefacts and pictures. All of the displays and models are designed and created in the museum’s studios. The smaller scale models and figurines are precisely sculpted in wax before a mould is made, allowing multiple figures to be cast. No matter whether the subject is shipping, farming, railways, or small scenes of people and cultures, the attention that is given to research and detail is spectacular! The settings and figures combine to create powerful 3D images of the past!
