Museum Open Day – 18th December 2016


Waiuku Museum will have an open day on 18th December 2016 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm.

During the open day all the heritage buildings on Tamakae Reserve will be open, as well as the main museum.

The main museum houses a vast collection of local artifacts ranging from early settlement to a more modern Waiuku.

The heritage buildings are a dairy, Pollok cottage, Maioro school, Waiuku lock up, and the Anglican Vestry.

Of special interest is the Heritage Barn that houses examples of a one cow milking shed and a blacksmith shop.  These were built by local farmer Bruce Parry.  The barn also has an interesting displays of farm equipment and implments.

The intention is to have regular open days on the third Sunday of the month.  If there are any craft or small musical groups and would like to come along and be part of this new venture, you are most welcome.

If you have any queries or further information please contact the museum secretary Helen Reardon on 09 235 9986.
