Coaltown Museum is a fantastic all weather attraction that appeals to every age. A great launching pad from which to explore the Buller District. Colourful, modern displays bring to life coal extraction and transport from wild and remote places such as Denniston, Millerton, Stockton and Seddonville along with the living and working environment of the people who made it happen and called these places home.
Our Maritime Display features attempts to tame the mighty Buller River and the construction and working of the port. A three cylinder triple expansion steam marine engine, formally driving the harbour drege SD Mawhera is on display, representative of the steam era that powered our early rail and shipping.
Special interest displays will be featured from time to time complementing our history and heritage offerings. Buller residents can enjoy half price entry with proof of residence.
