Life like displays showcase local Maori traditions such as tool making and harvesting, whaling history, early European settlers way of life and industries such as logging and farming, Chinese mining history, and war stories from ANZAC and Passchendaele.
We also have a Discovery Depot, which has a focus on the geology of the area, and gives you the opportunity to use our microscope and access to our library of geology resources.
This temporary exhibition features 42 artefacts from our collection which we have little or no information about. We are hoping virtual visitors here and on Facebook can help us figure it out!
From 1 June - 12 July each day we will share another artefact from this exhibition onto our Facebook page. Each week we will also be uploading these images to a slideshow on this page. If you think you can help us with information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
