Map showing Reefton School of Mines

Opened in 1886, Reefton School of Mines taught miners their trade and occasionally local school children chemistry as part of their schooling.

The simple gabled building holds an extensive technical book collection, a wonderful mineral collection sourced from places around the world, and out the back in the assay room crucibles wait on the shelves for their next charge of gold.

Entry is by arrangement through the Reefton Visitor Centre.
