Tawhiti Museum

Widely acclaimed as the best private museum in the country, Tawhiti Museum uses life-size exhibits and scale models to tell the stories of New Zealand’s heritage in super-realistic and engaging displays.

All these displays are designed and built on the premises in artist Nigel Ogle’s 'body shop' and accompanying studios, which can be viewed as part of a museum visit.  

The museum is divided into a series of themed galleries, each using scale and life-sized models as well as artefacts, photos and text. All these displays are designed and built in the museum's studios.
