I stumbled across this museum with a friend and we loved every moment of it. The museum is chock full of history about Queenstown and surrounding areas, it looks small but is actually quite large and full of interesting information. Well worth a look see

Treasure trove of old photos and documents. I was there in a research capacity. The staff bent over backwards to help.
