The district museum is very thorough in covering all things Arrowtown. All the crafts, baking, brewing, blacksmithing, mining, etc are all covered in this museum. It doesn't look as large outside as it really is. We were incredibly impressed with what is collected and displayed to represent this town and region from the Maori arriving through the European arrivals through the gold rush and moving into current times. Excellent artifacts. However, the most exciting thing we saw was the first exhibition of Frank Varsanyi's "Tribal Warriors" 48 Handmade heads, torsos and full life figures of the world's Tribal Warriors - Head Dresses, Weapons and Jewelry sourced from around the world. This exhibit ends 31 Jan 2018.
Thank you for your lovely review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your visit to the museum. Frank's exhibition is amazing isn't!
