The Friends of the Otaki Museum is a group for those wishing to support the museum's ongoing work.
At present we have over a 170 members who offer support through ideas, practical effort and financial contributions.
We also have a core group who, week after week, volunteer their time to host visitors and share their knowledge. They do a great job and help make the museum a more welcoming place. We would almost certainly be lost without them.

By joining our community of supporters, you can help us preserve and promote the stories of Otaki and its people.

As a member of the Friends you will also:
  • receive the "Friends" newsletter

  • be able to attend private views and events held at the Museum
  • be able to participate in local Museum projects
  • broaden your knowledge of the town and district

We would love to hear from you!

Nau mai, haere mai!
