Planning Guide


A typical visit to the Village's open-air museum sees your students greeted at the gate by our education staff who are dressed as though they live in the early settlement of Howick.  Students have a short morning tea before they embark on the morning activities.  Our educational activities showcase various aspects of life during Victorian time in New Zealand.  In each of these we are able to provide the students with the elements that are most relevant to their area of study.  They then break for lunch before being able to explore the village in groups.  Students must bring their own lunch.  Please do not bring pre-schoolers on school trips.  For a breakdown of the activities please download the activity overview  below. Choose between the following packages:  Full Day Visit`10am-2pm or Half Day Visit 10am-noon.  See pricing options below:
