If you’re visiting the deep south city of Invercargill, don’t miss its leading visitor attraction.
One man’s passion started it all – and this is your chance to experience a family legacy that has become the largest automotive museum of its type in the world. But if you think it’s strictly for petrolheads, think again. Here you’ll discover something for everyone.
Stunningly crafted within a world-class facility that will wow with its sheer size (we’re not exaggerating – the ‘sheds’ that make up this facility total 15,000 sqm), Bill Richardson Transport World is a veritable Aladdin’s den of treasures. Guests will be amazed at the more than 300 vintage vehicles ranging from retro Volkswagen Kombis, Henry Ford letter cars, stunning 1930s V8s, and more makes and models of classic trucks than you ever thought possible.
The collection also features more than 200 vintage petrol pumps and an assortment of vintage automotive memorabilia, as well as a wealth of history telling the stories of a bygone era in Invercargill. Outside of the extraordinary vehicle range, guests will also be delighted by the in-house movie theatre (a replica of Invercargill’s beloved Majestic Theatre), a growing wearable arts collection, children’s play zones including dress up opportunities and an entire room dedicated to LEGO, as well as delightful themed bathrooms fast becoming famous in their own right. With such a diverse collection, Bill Richardson Transport World is a must-do that has been cleverly designed to appeal to a wide range of visitors and families alike. An on-site café, The Grille, rounds out the experience. Allow plenty of time – there’s a lot to see.
