Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand

Broadgreen House and Samuels Rose Gardens

Broadgreen Historic House is a a two storey cob cottage, built in 1855. When you walk through the door you are truly taking a step back in time!

Wander through Victorian rooms, elaborately furnished with ornaments, gadgets and art from Nelson’s past. Explore bedrooms of the past, a gentleman’s study and a fully equipped kitchen and dairy. Learn about the families (the Buxtons and the Langbeins) who lived here and experience what domestic life was like for early settlers.

Enjoy various exhibitions throughout the year, and for fashion history fans, there are garments on display from Broadgreen’s nationally significant textile and costume collection.

Children can ride the large rocking horse or play in the ‘box room’, an interactive space to dress up, and learn about history through fun activities.

Finish your visit by taking a stroll through the beautiful Samuels Rose Garden with hundreds of different roses, varieties both old and new.
