Live Day at the East Coast Museum of Technology – Armistice Day 11 November
The East Coast Museum of Technology is a unique project that is owned and operated strictly by a non-profit organisation whose volunteers are passionate about the history behind the pieces you will find on display.
Gisborne History on Display
The museum displays and demonstrates a number of historical artifacts straight out of the local Gisborne District. It’s fun to see the progression of technology as it relates to the Gisborne region. The collection includes several firehouse vehicles which were used up until they were retired in 1976.
The museum’s collection also includes vehicles and items which were used during the second World War, including a Bren Carrier and a rare Guy Ant.
Other collections include agricultural equipment, domestic household appliances, and some fun IT history.

It’s a ton of fun for families with children.
