Live Days:

Most Months (excluding December): Looking for some entertainment, a family day out, or things to do in Auckland?  Then step back in time with us on a Live Day, where the Village comes to life with costumed Villagers. The whole Village is filled with activity, as villagers go about their daily tasks. On most live days you will find a marching band, a Fencible military demonstration, an exhibition that relates to that month’s theme, an opportunity to play with Victorian Era games, and a horse and carriage.  Let’s pass New Zealand’s history onto the younger generations; come learn about life in Colonial Auckland. Live days are from 10:00am to 4:00pm and admission charges apply.
