Unfortunately the Colonial Cottage Museum is temporarily closed while the brick chimney undergoes earthquake strengthening. The garden remains open to the public however the cottage building itself will be closed until early July. We look forward to seeing you then.
Step back in time into 1850s Wellington and the life of the Wallis Family. The house and garden appear just as they would have when the family lived there.
