Mangawhai Museum Open
Mangawhai Museum celebrates life round our harbour with stories as diverse as shipwrecks and gold bullion to geology at the beach, the plight of the Fairy Tern and the saving of the harbour entrance.
Welcoming Emma Gray
Newly appointed to the position of Museum Manager, Emma is now in the driving seat helping to ensure that Mangawhai’s new museum is the success that everyone hopes for it. In her first month in the job the signs have been good. Even with wonderful sunny weather making the beach so attractive there has been a steady stream of visitors, and the comments in the feedback book have been positive.
Mangawhai Museum celebrates life round our harbour from building ships to building sandcastles. It also tells of the an epic battle of the Maori wars, lost bullion still waiting to be found from the second world war, secret gatherings of heavy machinery to defy government regulators. In all there are eleven different stories stories including the very up-to-date story of the struggle to save the critically endangered Fairy Tern.
