Okains Bay Maori & Colonial Museum Main Road, Okains Bay, Banks Peninsula Open 10am-5pm Daily(Closed only on Christmas Day) ph 64-3-304-8611
Maori and colonial history come together in this extensive museum on Banks Peninsula. The Maori artefact
building houses some of the rarer objects in the collection. These include a sacred god stick dating back to the
year 1400, a war canoe dating back to 1867 and a valuable Akaroa hei tiki recovered in England and brought
back to Okains Bay by the museum's founder. Most of the carving on the magnificent Meeting House was done
by John Rua, a well-known New Zealand master carver. All traditions and tapu were observed.
Colonial pioneering life is shown in displays in the colonial hall. There are also cottages, stables and working
smithy, a print shop, many old horse-drawn gigs and carts and a saddlery.
