Millers Flat Bakehouse Museum

3 Craig Flat Road

Located in the heart of Millers Flat, you can’t miss the museum building directly in front of you as you come over the Millers Flat bridge.

The Bakehouse Museum is run by the local community who volunteer their time to open and close the museum as well as sell a few local crafts. The museum has been totally restored back to its former glory even with a working oven!

Please do come in and visit. Entry is free but all donations are very welcome.

Book a group tour of the Bakehouse

Group booking are always welcome. We offer guided tours by volunteers who are passionate about the Bakehouse. We can offer visits to explore the building and see into the ovens at a nominal fee or, for an extra cost, bake bread for each member of your group.

History of the Bakehouse Museum

The Millers Flat Bakehouse was built by Mr Louis Faigan who had founded the general store in the township in 1892. The first documented mention of the building is found in the Tuapeka Times dated 13th June 1908. It was stated that “Mr Faigan of Millers Flat is making additions to his premises in the way of a bakery.” Presumably, Louis Faigan would have learned how a wood oven worked from his father Aaron, who was a baker.
