We really enjoyed visiting this very special museum. The displays were really well done, a lot to see. We were also greeted by extremely welcoming volunteers who were passionate about the place. We would definately recommend this museum to all.

Lovingly tended by volunteers, .warkeorth Museum is a fascinating stroll through the area history, including NZ service during World Wars, the settlement of the area, and lots of social history including beautiful women’s handicrafts.

Museum has decent historical exhibition, very good for the museum of the size. Also make sure you go on track, its an easy, beautiful natural walk. And definitely take a picture with big kauri :)
