Donations and Bequests

A very generous bequest by Elvira Sundell allowed us to build the new museum.  The Elvira Sundell floor now holds the twelve diorama room and  Whakatohea Research and Archives Taonga (Treasures of the past).

We appreciate financial donations, which allow us to continue to run and improve the museum.  The Museum is a charitable trust, so donations are tax deductable. If you would like to make a donation or discus leaving a bequest, please contact us.

We also accept donations of artifacts, provided  that they fit within the Museums’ collection. If you would like to donate historic items, please contact us to discuss.
