Visitor Information

Day Visit

This information is intended to assist you in organising a successful day visit to the Hagley Visitor Centre.

  • When you plan your day please take into consideration that 60 to 90 minutes is required in order to gain maximum benefit from each activity
  • Please allow a minimum or 45 minutes for breaks (15 for a morning break and 30 for lunch). Younger children may need longer
  • Because of skill development, Cottage Industries is recommended for Grades 3 – 6. The Activity Museum provides a variety of hands on activities more suited to younger age groups. If you would like to make butter with Preps – 2, feel free to bring 1.8 to 2 litres cream per visit at room temperature and we will churn this with the children. (Cream should be left out of the fridge overnight). For an extra charge we are able to supply the cream. Please advise us if you wish to undertake this activity
  • For those wishing to focus on the History Curriculum your day may look something like this:
