About

The Kauri Museum recounts the history and the legacy of our ancient kauri forests, and the industries associated with the trees. In addition to preserving our past, the Museum plays a role in conserving the remaining trees, collaborating to “Save our Forests” by raising awareness of the spread of the Kauri Dieback disease, and promoting forest ecology.
