Western Bay Museum

Western Bay Museum – a small museum that tells a big story!

Western Bay Heritage Trust (WBHT) was established to set up the Western Bay Museum to preserve, conserve, store and display the historic, noteworthy items and stories of the Western Bay region.  By establishing a permanent Museum that is accessible to the public and serves the community as a place of learning, fascination and research for heritage, history and taonga.

We take immense pride in the cultural, historical and artistic stories of our Western Bay of Plenty region and present these narratives in fresh & interesting ways. 

Temporary, ever changing exhibitions in the Taylor Bros Transport Ltd Gallery are developed and displayed at least three times a year, keeping displays fresh and exciting.
