Mataura Museum

Our collection reflects Mataura's rich social and industrial heritage. We are based in a 1880s Cottage which we have restored and now use as the town's Museum.

We have a strong set of local photographs dating back to the 1870s and a comprehensive local history archive. We have put our collection on-line, so as to share it with a wider audience. We welcome enquiries and your information about Mataura's history. Copies of our photographs are available for purchase.
