WELCOME TO DARGAVILLE MUSEUM
TE WHARE TAONGA O TUNATAHI

The world-renowned Dargaville Museum Te Whare Taonga o Tunatahi is a fascinating must-see attraction. Located in Pou Tu o Te Rangi Harding Park with its magnificent views overlooking the district, town and the Northerrn Wairoa River, the Museum has 1800 square metres of exhibition space.

Dargaville Museum tells the fascinating stories of the Kauri Coast: from early Maori life represented by the 16-metre pre-European waka, the replica gumdiggers camp, shipwreck relics recovered from Ripiro Beach to the masts of the ill-fated Greenpeace protest ship, the Rainbow Warrior.

The Museum provides a number of outstanding displays to interest the whole family.
