Take a step back into Northland(TM)s history when you visit The Kauri Museum, nestled in the picturesque west coast village of Matakohe.
Our museum has something to interest everyone with art and photography displays, , pioneer cabins and buildings, and the history of the mighty Kauri trees. Watch actors and live machines show how Kauri makes the journey from the forest to beautiful carvings, furniture and much more.
Looking for a great, New Zealand made gift for a friend or loved one? Visit our gift shop or shop online. We have a selection of carvings, books, dvds, pendants, stationery and toys available for purchase.
After visiting the museum carry on to the beautiful Waipoua Forest and enjoying walking amongst the ancient Kauri trees that still grace our stunning landscape.
