Dargaville Museum

Dargaville Museum @Travel Notes Dargaville Museum @Travel Notes

Dargaville Museum Te Whare Taonga Tuna Tahi is an excellent regional resource and must stop for visitors interested in past stories and happenings. The location offers panoramic views of the area, the northern Wairoa River and farmland.  The highlights are

  • Replica gumdiggers camp
  • 16 m original waka pre-European sailing vessel.
  • Shipwreck relics and mast of Greenpeace protest ship Rainbow Warrior
  • An extraordinary collection of accordions

The museum uses standard exhibition displays yet the enthusiasm of the museum staff outweigh any collection display shortcomings. As with any collection, updating and restoration require funding which, in the case of museums, is mostly in short supply.  The museum has extensive genealogical records for the district.  The museum has a gift shop specialising in swamp kauri objects.
