The only working flax stripping museum in the world. Offers visitors an opportunity to look at the processes and products that were a vital part of Foxton's development.

In 1869 Mr C J Pownall set up the first flax mill in Foxton installing a stripper machine that he had designed. The flax industry thrived throughout New Zealand during the later years of the 19th century but during the 20th century there was a gradual decline and the last mill, in Foxton closed in 1973.
