Venue Types: Museum

The museum houses a growing collection of historic and restored vehicles, machinery, artefacts and memorabilia collected from around the Nelson, Marlborough and West Coast regions.

Higgins Park and its family of museums is the home to a large variety of exhibits ranging from hand tools to New Zealand's largest portable steam engine. Other rarities include the last known, original, 1913 International 15hp tractor in the world; a superbly restored R & P tractor from 1918, one of only three remaining; the Rover Club of Nelson's club rooms designed as an old garage with antique petrol pumps and of course, the original sawmill restored by Ross Higgins that helped start Higgins Park.
