Faraday Museum of Technology

The Faraday Museum of Technology in Napier is a place of discovery where history comes alive through hands on experience. Rather than read and look at pieces of history, we encourage you to touch, hold items, pull levers and truly discover how things would've been in days gone by. Experience history your way.
