Visit the nocturnal Kiwi House and see the resident kiwi foraging for food as they would in the wild. Learn about Kiwi conservation or see if you can spot one of our native geckos.
The Museum is home to nationally significant Taonga (Maori treasure), early settler displays and changing exhibitions.
The Clarke Homestead “Glorat” built in 1886 and lived in by the Clarke family until the 1980’s is a museum in itself, displaying the family’s treasures through the generations.
Other heritage buildings on site include the first Women’s Jail, Jane Mander’s Study, Oruaiti Chapel (made from a single Kauri log and believed to be New Zealand’s smallest church) and Riponui Pah School House.
Set aside several hours, bring a picnic enjoy the day.
