Morrinsville has made a special feature of its history with the Morrin Museum, where you can inspect a 1870s pioneer cottage.

You’ll pass through Morrinsville going to (or coming from) the hot spring pleasures of Te Aroha. While it’s primarily a service centre for the local farming community, you’ll find some interesting shops and a range of cafés.

The town’s museum includes an 1874 pioneer cottage from the district, fully furnished with authentic household items. The museum also has a Maori waka (canoe), as well as a collection of farm machinery and tools that were once in common use around Morrinsville. The Wallace Art Gallery is also well worth a visit.
