Sadly the museum is now closed and the collection is held by the local council on behalf of the people, parts of the collection are on display in the old fire station next to the information centre in Katikati township.

This museum is well put together, with many interesting exhibits from a by-gone era. We spent quite a long time exploring all it had to offer and everyone enjoyed it.

Unfortunately , the ' original ' Heritage Museum closed some 20 months back . However , there is now a " Western Bay Museum " located in the centre of Katikati , in the old fire station building , and which will be showing changing displays through the year . Being now a volunteer guide in the new museum , I cannot comment further .

This wonderful museum has now closed but it will be reopening soon in the middle of katikati.
The old fire station is being revamped and it will soon be ready to show off it's historical past.I hope they have their cafe attached as it was nice to visit for a coffee.
So see you soon at this venue
