Step through the museum’s entrance into this early settlers village, with many historic buildings and you are transported back in time to the pioneering days of the rural Wairarapa.
Cobblestones is a top heritage attraction for all ages, right in the heart of Wairarapa. Explore, discover, reminisce... there's plenty to do at Cobblestones where you'll get up-close with Wairarapa's colonial history, and be amazed at the treasure-trove of historic buildings, old time contraptions and machinery. Our new exhibition space tells the region’s stories through photographs, maps, exhibits and anecdotes.
Cobblestones’ historic village is often featured on Wairarapa garden tours, with its deciduous trees and pretty cottage gardens. The park is dotted with 19th century buildings, including Wairarapa's first hospital, Wesleyan Church and original Hastwell Stables built in 1857.
The museum is number 1 on Trip Advisor for Greytown – and a visit will quickly show you why!
