The Hokianga is home to many New Zealand ‘firsts’: First Maori explorers, first European settlements, first sawmills and boatyards, first to give women the right to vote. Now there’s a new first - New Zealand’s first Puzzle Museum. Located adjacent to the Waiotemarama Falls, the Puzzle Museum is the latest addition to Labyrinth Woodworks and Maze.

The museum contains more than 500 puzzles that have been collected for over 50 years. Some puzzles date back to the 1890s and early twentieth century and represent the works of both renowned and obscure puzzle designers from over 40 countries.

Louis is no light-weight in the puzzle design business either. At a height of nearly 2 metres, he was voted the Largest Puzzle Collector in the World at the 2008 International Puzzle Party in Prague. He has had three entries accepted into the world puzzle design competition, including NZANITY, a creation to drive one NZane! For those in the mind to shop, the Labyrinth shop offers an amazing selection of puzzles and games, from the traditional to the truly whacky. And then, of course, there is the MAZE and a riddle to solve! Clues can be found at
