Driving along Luggate-Cromwell Highway to Queenstown, you should see National Transport & Toy Museum on the left near Wanaka airport.
Lake Wanaka is also the home of New Zealand’s National Transport & Toy Museum. This fascinating collection houses one of the largest private collections in the world.
The museum is the result of one man’s dream and 50 years of collecting and preserving pieces from the past. The transport collection boasts rare and unusual aircraft, cars, trucks, motorcycles, fire appliances, military vehicles and tractors.
A nostalgic selection of toys has something to fascinate the child in everyone, such as clockwork and battery powered toys, porcelain dolls, teddy bears, pedal cars and money boxes.
The Museum offers indoor and outdoor playing areas with pedal tractors and trucks for the kids. The Museum shop has thousands of models and gifts.
Light refreshments are also available.
Adults $17.00 (Seniors $15.00)
Child (School Age) $5.00

Here are a lot of photos in HDR with ultra-wide gamut from Wanaka National Transport Museum...Being one of the largest in the world, there are thousands of light & heavy vehicles including toys. I had taken a lot of photos here...Hope is not too boring for most of you.....just bear with me if you do not like them, others may like to see these antiques.
It is impossible to describe every item or else I will be spending several reading days inside the museum.
One photo should covers a few items towards the end.
All my photos are in "Getty Images" style. They are in 50-72 low resolution and smaller dimensions to save space in photobucket.
This is also mainly to flustrate the sale of my photos by photobucket.
With such space-saving-dimensions & low resolution in photobucket, I do not have to delete them and thereby they will stay put in USJ Forum.
