Kids Club and Playground

The Buried Village is an attraction suitable for the whole family. There is plenty to see and do for the kids. Pram and stroller access is provided for with sealed paths and ramps throughout the village with the exception of the track to waterfalls. Highchair and changing facilities are also available.

Our younger visitors can enjoy tasksheets, see the park’s wildlife and our guides entertain with flax weaving demonstrations. Next to the cafe, there is an adventure playground where the little ones can have fun, play and explore while you enjoy a great coffee. 

Don’t forget to check out the Children’s Discovery Room in the museum. This is an interactive discovery experience especially designed for children, but enjoyed by adults too. Here you can engage in a hands-on archaeological dig and listen to stories and read children living in Te Wairoa from around the 1860’s.

Our Store has a great range of children’s books on New Zealand history, heritage and culture, along with Maori myths and legends and stories by famous NZ children’s authors.
