Bulls Museum had 35 visitors on Saturday, day one of the Rangitikei Heritage Weekend - but volunteer Robin Boutcher (pictured) said that wasn't unusual. It averaged 700 people a month and was open every day, usually from 10am to 3pm.

Instead of a general collection of early settler farming equipment and household items, the museum tries to put up new displays of particular stories. Its Anzac display has been popular for the last few weeks.

But it also has a display of the district's scouting history, one about the Flock House farm training institute and one about Bulls-raised racing driver Chris Amon.
