History & heritage
The Hokitika Museum is a regional museum located in the heart of Westland and housed in the historic Carnegie Building.
The Hokitika Museum’s core function is to manage the community’s heritage collection and share Westland’s stories with visitors and residents through exhibitions, displays, publications and public programmes.
The museum’s core values are trust-worthiness, authenticity and accuracy and we are responsible caretakers who are passionate about Westland’s history.
The archives & research centre is open by appointment only please contact us: email@example.com
The historic Carnegie Building (once the town's library) is at the corner of Tancred and Hamilton streets. Turn left at the town clock and then take the next right and cross the first intersection.
