The Wairoa District Museum is located at the rear of the Wairoa Public Library, added as an extension in 1974. The museum presents historical displays related to the Maori and European history of the Wairoa and surrounding districts. The strength of this museum lies in its photographic collections that presents a pictorial history from the 1890s through to the present day. There is also a very strong collection of Maori artefacts.

We have two exhibition galleries. Our main gallery features the long-term display – Whakaatatanga o Te Wairoa – Reflections of the Long River. This installation traces the natural and cultural history of our area from the time of first colonisation, approximately 1000 years ago, to the present.

The Wairoa District teams with bird life. Wetland and seacoast birds of the area include pukeko, weka, rails and bitterns.
