Yet another of the things I had never done whilst living here was to visit The Faraday Centre in Napier. In 1979 The Hawke’s Bay Museum of Technology was formed to foster the preservation of regional technology of significance. In 1995 it amalgamated the Hawke’s Bay Cultural Trust and the centre was renamed The Faraday Centre. It is now part of the Hawkes Bay Museum and Art Gallery. It is fascinating and yet another place I will re-visit.
Perhaps the most impressive, or perhaps the most spectacular would be a better description, of the many exhibits is a Tesla Coil shown being demonstrated (very noisily) in the last three photos.
This will not be the last you will hear about the Centre although you might have to wait a while for the next installment.
