Uncover Manawatū’s past, people, and culture through a number of fascinating museum attractions.
For rugby fans, the New Zealand Rugby Museum is a rare treat. Home to a large collection of some of the world’s most unique rugby artefacts, the museum features detailed coverage of the emergence of New Zealand as a rugby superpower. You can also test your rugby skills in the ‘Have a Go’ area – what are your tackling skills like? If rugby’s not your thing, head to Te Manawa - Manawatū's innovative museum of art, science and heritage featuring changing exhibitions and exciting events. Or step back into early settler life at The Coach House Museum.
