Fodor's Expert Review MTG Hawke's Bay

Napier Museum/Gallery Fodor's Choice

Thanks to a multimillion-dollar renovation, the Hawke's Bay Museum has morphed into the MTG Hawke's Bay—a space that is home to a museum, a theater, and a gallery. The museum component's curatorial team is engaged, and the exhibitions ponder a range of local and international issues, so you might see a temporary display devoted to an exploration of memory alongside a cutting-edge digital presentation. There's also a significant collection of newspaper reports, photographs, and audiovisuals that re-create the suffering caused by the 1931 earthquake, plus a unique collection of artifacts—including vessels, decorative work, and statues—relating to the Ngāti Kahungunu Māori people of the East Coast.
