Have a read through some of the great comments visitors to the Faraday Museum of Technology have left.


Great interactive displays - clear explanations, fun items to use. Loved seeing the children wander through, able to touch everything. I could have spent hours on the player piano.

Stuff from my childhood...

Really fun place, fantastic that you are able to touch everything and make it work. Great that is so interactive. Was weird, in a good way, to see stuff from my childhood that I had forgotten about. Very enjoyable visit.

Incredible day

We held my son's 7th birthday at the Faraday Centre. We had an incredible day and the staff have all been friendly and helpful from my initial enquiry through to the birthday itself. A real hidden gem in Napier. Will be spreading the word. Thanks for making my son's birthday extra special :)

Interesting and informative

A very interesting and informative compilation of technological history. It brings back memories of my parents' early days. All the children were enthralled at the exhibits and loved how they interacted with the "old' technology. A "MUST SEE" for everyone.

Absolutely brilliant!

Absolutely brilliant! I was amazed at the items I remembered as a child. Will bring my grandchildren for a visit from Wellington. Wonderful - it's all hands on.

Linda W - Wellington

Wonderful, thrilling visit!

I'm so glad we came, what an amazing facility you have here. Next time we'll leave our children and bring our grandparents so they can tell us some stories! Thank you so much.

Fun visit

It was a very fun visit. I had an opportunity to play with a lot of machines and the staff were very friendly. The perfect activity for a rainy day.

Absolutely amazing place for all ages. Thank you to the wonderful volunteers for allowing us to the centre for our holiday programme. A great place for appreciating history and why technology is the way it is now.

Levers, pulleys, phones...

I liked everything but the robot was a bit scary. I especially liked the levers, pulleys, phones and electricity, and the polyphon.
