Hawke's Bay Museum

Hawke's Bay Museum Review

A multimillion-dollar renovation has seen this museum renamed MTG Hawke's Bay—a space that is home to the museum, a theater, and a gallery. The curatorial team is engaged and the exhibitions ponder a range of local and international issues. You'll need to check the website but you could see a retrospective exhibition of a body of work alongside the exploration of memory and momentos and a cutting-edge digital presentation. The museum is home to a significant collection of newspaper reports, photographs, and audiovisuals that re-create the suffering caused by the earthquake. It also houses a unique display of artifacts of the Ngati Kahungunu Māori people of the East Coast—including vessels, decorative work, and statues.
