A great slice of New Zealand’s Farming History - well worth a visit!
The Museum is housed in two century-old historic woolsheds, relocated and situated in the cultural heart of Masterton.

- Learn about how modern New Zealand was developed on sheep farming and wool
- Learn about the lifestyle and culture of the people involved in the shearing and wool handling industry
- See the Golden Shears Hall of Champions and watch exciting footage of past Golden Shears finals
- Sit inside our musterer’s hut and listen to oral histories of local farming & rural history
- See a vast collection of photographs, artefacts and historical collections of shearing memorabilia

Inside our gift shop, you will find an exciting array of quality merchandise at very competitive prices - lanolin products, sheepskins, soft toys, MKM Ltd Merino/Possum clothing & accessories as well as items produced by our local Spinning and Weaving group.

(We are having a winter clearance sale of the possum/merino clothing starting 10th October, so it's a great chance to stock up on the winter woollies and buy fabulous gifts at crazy low prices.
