Taranaki Pioneer Village allows visitors to take a nostalgic trip through history and experience an outdoor museum that presents the life of Taranaki pioneers in both the 19th and 20th centuries, recalling childhood memories and introducing parts of history to the younger generation!

The Pioneer Village is a major central Taranaki visitor attraction that appeals to visitors of all ages with modern amenities that contrast with a ‘going back in time’ experience as visitors enter the village’s main street. No visit to the Pioneer Village would be complete without taking a trip on the Pioneer Express train. The train circles around the perimeter of the village and is a very popular way to view everything the museum has to offer!
