To connect the world with the history and culture of the Far North, Aotearoa New Zealand.

Who We Are / Koinei Matou

We have been a regional museum since 1969, with a treasured responsibility to collect, care for and keep alive the precious histories and stories of our region Te Hiku o Te Ika – The Far North. View our Museum Strategy.

The museum operates under the guidance of the Far North Regional Museum Trust, with support from the Far North District Council as a trusted partner.

Operationally, the museum is staffed by a full time Curator and part time Museum Assistant with help from an enthusiastic team of volunteers.
Current 2022 Far North Regional Museum Trustees are:

• Bronwyn Bauer-Hunt (Chair)
• Ian Bamber (Treasurer)
• Sheryl Bainbridge (Te Hiku Community Board representative)
• John Stewart
• Haami Piripi (Te Runanga o Te Rarawa representative)
