The Kauri Museum in Matakohe is the leading Museum and Gift Shop for all Kauri themed products in New Zealand. The award winning Kauri Museum tells the story of our pioneering settlers though the lens of the Kauri Industry.
The museum specialises in the legacy of our Kauri Forests; specifically the strong durable timber and the highly prized Kauri Gum.

What makes us different
Our museum has something to interest everyone with art and photography displays, , pioneer cabins and buildings, and the history of the mighty Kauri trees. Watch actors and live machines show how Kauri makes the journey from the forest to beautiful carvings, furniture and much more.
