Lakes District Museum

Lakes District Museum

Open 8.30am - 5pm daily except Christmas Day. Researcher/archivist and education officer available. 

The Lakes District Museum is much more than a museum in the conventional sense; hence its popularity with local residents and visitors from all around the world. The museum has a strong hands-on focus, presenting an authentic picture of early Maori life and the harsh pioneering days of the European settlers and goldminers through working displays covering two floors and incorporating three historic buildings. The museum also houses an art gallery, bookshop, archives and research facility and a busy education programme. We also own and operate Arrowtown's historic Post Office.
