Guided Tours

If you want to make the most of your visit, we recommended booking a guided tour with one of our friendly and knowledgeable guides. Tours last approximately 45 minutes and, as well as giving an excellent overview of Mansfield’s life and Wellington history, can be adapted to your interests.

Pricing depends on the size of your group but is very reasonable. For more information, please contact us.


We welcome groups from early childhood centres, primary and secondary schools and tertiary institutions. We can offer resources in advance of your visit (such as these ones on our 'Resources for Writers and Educators' page), lead an activity during your visit, or adapt a guided tour to your students’ area of focus.

The price per student is just $5 and teachers accompanying student groups are free.

To discuss the best approach for your students, please contact us.

Recent feedback from teachers

"I thought it was great, a balance of exploration as well as focused activity...Thanks again and hope to see you in two years' time." Teacher of a Year 7 & 8 class who visited as part of a school camp to Wellington, September 2020.

"Our visit was effortless and perfectly targeted as our inquiry was about how toys and games had changed over time...The children especially enjoyed playing the game you taught them. It was a great amount of time for this age group too and you were lovely with the children." Teacher of a Year 1 class from Wellington, June 2020.
