Akaroa Museum is focused on the history of Banks Peninsula. Its collections are varied from archives, archaeology and art to zoology. A full range of museum services is provided to the community and visitors, including changing exhibitions, research services and access to an extensive collection. The Museum is open 363 days a year.
The Akaroa Museum was established in 1964 around the historic Langlois-Eteveneaux cottage, a rare remnant of the French presence in Akaroa. Since then, the Museum has expanded to include three exhibition galleries, a research room, theatre, and shop. Two additional heritage buildings, the old Akaroa Court House and the Custom House are also under the care of the Museum.
