BACK PORCH GALLERY

This is a newly created gallery located in a corner in the education space of the Museum. It highlights our new environmental theme from the Curioseum, providing insights into local, national and international environmental themes. To find out what we currently have on show check out our Facebook or call in to the Museum at 135 Roche Street, Te Awamutu. This space is always changing with new, vibrant and meaningful displays, so it’s always good to check up on what’s happening on the Back Porch!
