I was wanting to find some further details on grandparents and where they lived. The two ladies in the museum were extremely helpful, went to all lengths to gather information for me. Found some information, but need another day or two at least to source more.

Good exhibition center with Maori and European settler artifacts as well as local arts and crafts. There is historical and geological (earthquake and volcano) information also. It’s well displayed and has informative descriptions. It’s free (donations accepted).

May be what some call small but this Museum and Arts was tops on displays, variety information, the Art Exhibition and was full of exhibits that were fascinating and interesting. The use of a wheel chair was a bonus for someone with a disability.

The Whakatane Museum is no where near as good as the old museum in Whakatane. The new museum which is attached to the Library, doesn’t even contain half of the exhibits the old one and is really small . On the plus size the Art Gallery is a great addition and contains some very intriguing pieces of work.
