Tairāwhiti Museum Tairāwhiti Museum Tairāwhiti Museum
The museum and art gallery has a reputation as one of the very best, most innovative regional museums in New Zealand. In recent years we have undergone significant change including major building extensions, redevelopment of all exhibition spaces, and the establishment of a broadly representative Board of Trustees. Our vision is to become an integral part of the community of Tairāwhiti and our role extends beyond our own four walls to the most remote parts of the region.

The museum features hanging exhibitions of regional history, local and national art exhibitions, and a historic cottage and ship to explore. Changing exhibitions of regional history, local and national art exhibitions, and a historic cottage and ship to explore.
