New Exhibition

The Otaki Museum is proud to present the latest exhibition “Otaki Faces and Places” - a collection of images spanning 150 years, capturing both personalities and landscapes special to Otaki.

We invite you to view this exhibition which contains many images and taonga (treasures), some of which have not been on public display before. The museum is open 10am – 2pm Thursday, Friday and Saturday and we are happy to accommodate groups outside of these hours.
