Te Awamutu Museum

Come and explore Waipa’s rich social history at the Te Awamutu Museum.

Travel down the Path of War of the Waikato campaign in the New Zealand Wars. Discover the music of the Finn brothers and how they rose to international fame as Split Enz.

Our redeveloped Tangata Whenua gallery displays taonga of the Tainui people who settled in the area with video stories of Uenuku and there’s hours of fun for the whole family in Kidz Space, our interactive playground.

Te Awamutu Museum also houses a substantial archive on local history available to researchers.
