The Other Buildings Cared for by the Waiuku Museum – Anglican Vestry

Anglican Vestry - 3

The Anglican Vestry was built in 1873 and was attached to the local Waiuku Anglican church until they made some extensions to their building.  Now it lives in-between the museum and the Maioro School.

The Other Buildings Cared for by the Waiuku Museum – Maioro School

This is the second Maioro School and it was opened in 1923.

It is used during school visits to show the children what it was like to attend school in the 1920’s.  An let me tell you, it’s a shock to most of them…..

Welcome to the Waiuku Museum Blog!

Welcome all to the new blog by the Waiuku Museum.

Here we will be keeping you up to date on the latest happenings at the coolest little museum on this side of the Waikato River.

To let you get to know the museum a little better, let me tell you about us:

  • We have permanent displays and changing exhibitions of local history.  This includes historic buildings on the Tamakae Reserve.
  • The historic buildings include the Second Maioro School, Pollok Cottage and Hartmann House.
  • The museum caters for school and other groups, by prior arrangement.
  • The museum can provide assistance with local genealogy and historic research.
  • There are also souvenirs and books for sale.

Our opening hours are:

Wednesday – 10am to 12pm

Weekends – 1:30pm to 4pm

Other weekdays by prior arrangement

The museum charges a nominal entry fee of $3 per adult and $1 per child.  This goes towards the up-keep and maintenance of the buildings and collection, as the museum receives limited funding.

The museum is run and staffed by volunteers from the local area.
