Faraday Centre Reviews
We had a range from 65 years to 9 and we spent 2 hours in here easily... so so good.The price is excellent and it is very hands on so the kids get to play with yester year stuff and learn more »
Art by well-known artists, Victorian costumes, Maori art and textiles and a great book store with high quality gifts and authentic items. more »
It is very interactive and fun, having many exhibits about past inventions and innovations. There are concise instructions to explain how to use most of the interactive items, allowing one to learn how things were used in the past. Additionally, the principles behind each and every monumental invention is explained simply through pictures or short ELI5 (explain like I’m five) explanations.
It's a fun museum because visitors can interact with all the recent and not so recent technology. It's also fun for (older) kids. It must take a lot of effort by the volunteers to keep the exhibits in working order.
