Western Bay Museum is a boutique sized museum situated in the beautiful Bay of Plenty, New Zealand. Our district is comprised of beautiful beaches, fertile agricultural land and lush native bush. The communities which make up our population are diverse, dynamic and richly multicultural.

We take immense pride in the historical, cultural and artistic stories of our area and strive to present these narratives in fresh and interesting ways, utilising our permanent collection of objects and artefacts. Temporary, thematic exhibitions are developed and displayed every three months.
