About Us

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

Waiuku Museum has been established for almost 50 years ago in the old Waiuku Fire Station.  Over the years the collection has been maintained by volunteers, and this is still the case.

Below is a brief summary of what is available at the museum.

  • 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 to school and other groups, by prior arrangement.
  • The museum can provide assistance with local genealogy and historical research.  Please make an appointment with our archivist for this service.
  • There are also souvenirs and books for sale.
  • The museum is run and staffed by volunteers from the local area.

We are located in the centre of Waiuku in the Tamakae Reserve, at 13 King Street, Waiuku.

The museum charges an entry fee of $5 per adult and $2 per child.

This goes towards the upkeep and maintenance of the buildings and collection, as the museum receives limited funding.

One response to “About Us

  1. Hi All,
    I am the Co-Ordinator of a Senior’s group of young-at-heart able-bodied females aged between 70 and 80 years of age. I am interested to bring the ten ladies to visit the Waiuku Museum in Term 2. At this stage we are planning our Term 2 Schedule and would love to include a visit to Waiuku Museum. Our group meet every Wednesday during the School Term and would like to visit on a Wednesday. Are the entry prices on your website still current? If so do we have to pay a deposit prior to our visit? I look forward to your reply.
