​​​​New Name and COVID-19 Update​

Waitaki Museum and Archive logo

We now have a new name and brand and plan to open our refreshed permanent exhibitions later in 2020, with more to come in 2021. We are continuing to add a lot of digital content to our online collections which you can view at the Culture Waitaki - Online Collections site​ and we are posting regular blogs about our collections and the work behind the scenes to redevelop our exhibitions.

We will update our community as soon as we can about our planned reopening date for the new Museum permanent exhibition space and we will keep you informed about changes to the Archive reference room.

Keep an eye on the Culture Waitaki website​ and the Waitaki Museum & Archive Facebook page for updates.

These records include photographs, records of local clubs and societies, records of local businesses and individuals, local school records and newspapers.
