New Zealand: The World's Fastest IndianSouthland Museum: The Movie Streamliner
The Southland Museum and Art Gallery is renowned for its cultural and natural history collections, as well as for the in-house art galleries. However, the two draw cards are the museum's Tuatara, the world's oldest living dinosaurs, and the small movie exhibition around The World's Fastest Indian, which includes replicas of Burt Munro's real motorbike and of the streamliner used in the film.
A 'making-of' documentary runs through some of the challenges the film crew encountered and also talks about Burt's life as a motorcycle fanatic.
Entry to the museum is free.
The museum is located at 108 Gala St, Queens Park, Invercargill.

While you're at the Museum, don't miss the chance to see resident Tuatara Henry (120 years old) and his girlfriend Mildred (90 years old) in the museum's Tuatarium.
