Don’t forget to support our wonderful sponsors

This museum only has a chance for survival because you, the public, and the following local businesses and organisations have come in behind it. Taking an amazing hidden collection of this breadth, and successfully turning it into a destination and educational resource for the whole of Northland and New Zealand is no mean feat.

A huge amount of voluntary labour and resources have enabled us to get where we are currently. We are so grateful for those businesses who simply put their hands up and said, “How can we help?” Some businesses have donated specific items, or labour. Others donate on a regular basis to our volunteer budget, allowing us to reimburse the petrol costs of our volunteers coming in every week to polish and repair and build, organise and clean to improve the presentation of the exhibits.
