LOOKING IN THE SQUARE

A PICTURE RECORDS A MOMENT IN TIME. It will never return, but we have the picture to cherish

The Castle, Tirau
.
The castle above is really a Doll and Toy Museum. It sits on a hill overlooking the southern approach to Tirau township in the Waikato, south of Hamilton. The second picture shows a scene with the dolls arranged to make up a setting; ladies busy in a kitchen with the baby playing on the floor. There are many such sets with dolls representing a whole range of activities inside the Castle.
.
Jill, my wife, and I have visited the Castle at least three times and recommend this for anyone visiting Tirau, New Zealand. .

I wouldn't recommend it. Apparently it is only open school holidays now (although you only find this out when you get to the gate) and after driving 90 minutes to get there the owner wouldn't even let me take a photo of my 3 year old son in front of it.
