The Kauri Museum

The Kauri Museum The Kauri Museum

The award winning Kauri Museum tells the story of the kauri tree and the people who developed industries to harvest the rich resources of our ancient kauri forests.
The unparalleled kauri timber and magnificent juvenile amber (kauri gum) built our nation.

Kauri gum was an ingredient in varnish and jewellers who valued the reflected light of amber.

Interesting fact

Maori for centuries had their own supply of natural chewing gum.

Experience the kauri story of the past, understand its present and be part of the kauri tree’s future.
