During this time the archives store and office will be moved and up-graded as part of the Museum’s seismic strengthening and building improvements programme. The archives will not be easily accessible so we are asking researchers to wait until the service reopens on 1 June 2017. If your enquiry is urgent, you may phone the Archivist Sandi Black on 06 349 1110 to see if she can gain access to what you need.

We thank you for your patience!

FEATURED PHOTO

This photograph is of the Manganui-o-te-Ao River, a tributary of the Whanganui River, around the turn of the 20th century. There are signs of habitation, with planted crops and neat fences. The tents may have belonged to the party of the photographer, F J Denton. This image is one that provokes admiration at its composition, its atmosphere and its technical competence. It tells us a lot about what was happening on and around this cold tributary of the Whanganui River at the turn of the twentieth century and it shows how little the area has changed in comparison to the widespread loss of bush and river pollution in nearby places.
