Museum
“The museum in Napier is well worth a visit. You can learn about Maori history and culture as well as more recent events like the 1931 earthquake and the rebuilding of Napier and Hastings in the Art Deco style. It's not a big museum but has some interesting stuff.”

History Museum
“The Wairoa Museum is centrally located on Marine Parade, Wairoa. In late 2016 the Museum launched a major re-development - Kakapa (the Pulse). This included refurbishment of all galleries and installation of new exhibitions, increasing overall exhibition space by 100% and displayable collection from 5% to 85%. Interactive discovery space was developed and the repatriation of a New Zealand Māori war flag from a museum in Scotland was completed. The museum is 38 km from our cottage”
