A mixture of artifacts, photo displays and videos make this historical museum well worth the visit. Great footage of boats trying to clear the bar under challenging conditions. Gives an insight into the resilience and character of the West Coasters

A small museum with things from the good old days, of which there were a few, however the hours of this place seem to fluctuate.

Something to do with earthquake safety of the building and it doesn’t look like it will open any time soo . The council’s website mentions the closure but there are still signs all over Greymouth telling you to go there.

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.
