More information

Audio-visuals provide a great introduction to the West Coast while exhibitions tell stories of pounamu, tangata whenua, the gold-rush, whitebaiting and more.

Don’t miss the giant Meccano model dredge or the quiz for kids! Open 7 days.

The museum has a great collection of treasures and its photograph and archives collections are an important resource for historians and genealogists.
