Temporary closure of Museum
Due to ongoing concerns around the Covid-19 virus the Museum of Waiheke will remain closed until New Zealand moves to Alert Level 1 — except for a trial reopening on Saturday, 30 May 2020, from 11AM to 3PM.
The Annual General Meeting of the Waiheke Island Historical Society has been postponed from the advertised date of 5 April 2020.
For further updates on both the Museum closure and a new date for the AGM, please refer back to this website or to our Facebook page: Museum of Waiheke and Historical Village.
Thank you for your understanding.
The Museum held its annual Live Heritage Day on the Sunday of Labour Weekend (27 October), from 11AM to 3PM. Weather was perfect and a good crowd turned out — in spite of the theft of our water pump the previous night!
Goodwin Cottage refreshed
When you see an old building with peeling paint you think no one cares, but Foundation North do, and so with heartfelt thanks to them we now have a heritage cottage looking very smart and cared for, beautifully painted by Graeme O’Brien whose family has a long history with our island. Some of our volunteers have been working hard to refresh the interior, with new furniture and items on display. Come have a look!
