The Historic Village in Tauranga, NZ is a “collection of original and replica buildings from early Tauranga”. It’s a sort of museum for old buildings — similar in concept to Heritage Park here in Calgary except on a much smaller scale and without the re-enactors or key attractions such as a steam locomotive or vintage amusement park rides.

Sarah and I wandered the Historic Village, but there wasn’t really a lot to see or do. Apart from a few shops, none of the buildings were open to the public. I took photos of the more interesting parts of the Village and after an hour or so, we left. The one thing I did like was some of the interesting artwork.
