Our Collections

The Museum features a large collection of unique exhibits and historical archives found nowhere else in New Zealand. Archive material is available for researchers and other interested people - contact the Museum in advance if you wish to access archive material.

The collections include:

  • photographic archives of local history from the early 20th century,
  • a collection of wood craft from local and national artists,
  • a number of restored historical buildings onsite,
  • a local geology display and, of course,
  • everything about the timber industry in the local region going back more than 100 years.
