At $6 a ticket, I thought this was well worth the entry. Nothing really blows you away but what a treasure trove of history. If you've got a natural interest in life and history, I think you will enjoy this museum. My favourite piece was the chairs that QE2 and Prince Phillip sat in. Funny.

This is a must see little museum showing all the interesting history of Greymouth and surrounding areas, especially the history of the coal mining, shipping, the Grey river including all the tragedies. Only One of these in the world.

This place is one of those little hidden gems . Think most people (tourist ) would not seek it out but for those who do they will be delighted .
It is crammed packed with images and objects of the past from Greymouth and surrounds . It industries and its peoples.
For a small donation one can learn a lot.

An amazing treasure trove of local history. Great photos and exhibits. If you are tracing info on old West coast towns, industries, maritime activity or people, this is a must visit. Stacks of early accessible files have been compiled to help research or just browsing.
