One of the days whilst we were staying at Onaero Beach was a bit drizzly, not really beach weather at all. It was suggested that due to the weather being a bit poor we could pay a visit to TATATM or the Taranaki Aviation, Transport and Technology Museum.
TATATM is a place that I'd been past a number of times whilst growing up in Taranaki - but I had never visited. Strange as it does seem like the kind of place that you would be taken with your class at school.
The museum is very grassroots - its run by a bunch of volunteers who are obviously very passionate about history. There museum was made up of a number of different sheds which all seemed to have slightly different themes.
The first shed we visited had all kinds of old farm machinery and a whole wall of chainsaws (I didn't get a photo of that though) and an old sign from Kaimiro School which must have now closed.
We learnt so much about printing presses - it was so fascinating! The world was so different before the advent of computers.
Can you spot a rather young Dame Kiri Te Kanawa looking rather sultry on an album cover in the first picture.
