Welcome to the Te Aroha & District Museum

Te Aroha & District Museum Society Inc.


Te Aroha & District Museum is located in the Cadman Bath House, the Domain, Te Aroha. The buildings in the Domain form the only complete Edwardian Domain in New Zealand.

Opened in 1898, the Bath House was the first building commissioned especially for tourists - so has been called "The birth place of tourism in New Zealand". 

In 1971 Te Aroha Mayor, Henry Skidmore, started the Museum, which is still growing and developing today. We have a large and varied collection of which 75% is on display at any one time. Special exhibitions are staged twice a year.

The images above include:
