Western Bay Museum

Museum in Katikati

Housed in a former fire station, this little regional museum displays a selection of Māori artefacts from the local tribe, Ngāi Te Rangi, along with temporary exhibitions devoted to aspects of the town's heritage, such as the kauri timber industry – a kauri tree larger than Tāne Mahuta once grew in this region, but it was felled in 1939.
