This award-winning museum tells a fascinating story of the pioneering days through the use of kauri timber and kauri gum. Settlers first came to Matakohe and nearby Paparoa in 1862 and this museum was established to celebrate their centennial and to pay tribute to those early pioneers. There are many exceptional displays and dedicated wings to admire.

You can expect to see a magnificent collection of antique kauri furniture and restored machinery including NZ's earliest tractor, a 1929 Cat 60 and a turning Steam Sawmill. The Qualmark accredited Kauri Museum also has the largest collection of kauri gum in the world, a replica boarding house, a school and a historic post office with a fantastic collection of telephones.
