22 March 2020
Tairāwhiti Museum and Exhibit Café will close to the public from Monday 23 March 2020 to protect the health of the community.
Our staff are continuing to work in our offices or from home and will be able to continue most of our activities.
If you wish to enquire about a collection item, make an offer of a donation to the museum or if you find a Taonga Tūturu please contact the museum by phone or email in the first instance.
We will continue to provide remote research services utilising the museum’s archival and photographic collections where possible. Please contact the museum by phone, email or letter in the first instance.
Museum education services
Museum educators will continue to support teachers in the Tairāwhiti region by providing localised place based learning lessons linked to the New Zealand curriculum, that can be utilised in your classroom via a range of online strategies. Contact us to discuss your specific needs at email@example.com
Exhibitions and public programmes
We are working with artists who have exhibitions scheduled to find alternative ways to support them and share their work with the Tairāwhiti community and wider audiences.
There are many other resources based on museum collections, exhibitions and activities available to explore on the museum website and blog and we will regularly add more over this time.
While online shop purchases can be made, we are unable to access museum stock, and will only post your order out once the museum reopens.
We will review the situation regularly and will post updates and share continuing museum activities on the museum website, Facebook page and other social media.
