Entire bus full of quirky things to play with for free. Coffee. And back yard with more toys for $10 entry



Free to view in the bus but the $8 for the full gallery is worth every cent. Check it out. My favourite entertaining stop in NZ



Twist, pull, press, push, touch any button you can find and something amazing will happen. A wonderful place to explore, so much curiosity everywhere. You find many creative automata that will make you smile. The bus is for free but definitely go to the theatre for only $8 and support this local artist! You also find a small Cafe for a coffee and some home made pastry. :)
