Some of what to see at the Hawke's Bay Museum...
Art Deco Style
An exhibition showcasing our fabulous Art Deco collection. Art Deco redefined the way the world looked. It influenced all design - buildings, aircraft, vehicles, furnishings, fashion, and homeware - to create a 'modern world'. This exhibition focuses on the multiple styles and influences of the Art Deco movement. It highlights key designers whose work epitomises the spirit of the period.
Once Were Dinosaurs
Follow the discovery of the ONLY terrestrial dinosaur remains ever found in New Zealand by Hawke's Bay's famous 'dinosaur lady', Joan Wiffen. Watch the video and join Joan and her dedicated band of amateur palaeontologists as they uncover the unique remains of giant creatures such as Dryosaur, Meglasaur, Plesiosaur and Pterosaur in the Maungahouanga Valley of Northern Hawke's Bay.
Learn about the local Maori people, through their special treasures (taonga) in Nga Tukemata - The Awakening. You will begin to understand how the present living culture has spiritual links with the past through people, words, tools and artworks. These treasures are inspiring.
