Hands-on Interactive Exhibition

23 High St, Waipawa

Churning butter by hand, using hand-powered sewing machines, writing with nib pens or clanging away behind an old-school typewriter - everything old will be new again at an upcoming exhibition at the CHB Settlers Museum.

The museum in Waipawa is revisiting its very successful “Hands on: Early Settler Life” interactive exhibition.

First held in in 2011 and then again in 2013, the exhibition had proven to be very popular with school groups and kindergartens.

Visitors could experience making butter using a butter churn; shop in an old-time store using an old cash register, weigh goods on old-fashioned scales and learn about the old British money that was used in New Zealand.

In the wash-house display, visitors can try hand-washing using a washboard and soap while the classroom display would demonstrate how strict rules applied in old schools, not just for students but for teachers as well.

Booking for groups essential, runs until 23 October 2018.
