We knew the Steampunk Museum was the kind of place our younger grandson Karol would be fascinated by. There were all sorts of strange things crafted out of old machinery and metal. I know it added to the atmosphere, but the lighting was very low. That makes the photos a bit dark - my apologies for that! I have adjusted the brightness where possible.

I've not added many captions, mainly just the photos this time.
|Displays before entering the museum|
There is a room with a glass floor that I felt weak in the knees walking into - you close the door behind you and the light show starts. Rather beautiful, but I am most uncomfortable with glass floors ...
|That is David on the platform|
|The floor beyond the platform may be mirrored, I think...|
|There must have been mirrors all around given there was only one platform in reality...|
|To leave the building you have to come out through the round section to the left. To get back in to exit the museum, you have to go in through a train, IIRC. Not an obvious way to depart, I have to say ...|
It is pretty cool. To be fair, if I hadn't wanted to send Karol some information about Oamaru, we would not have gone. And I am glad we did.
