Te Manawa Museum Society

Te Manawa Museum Society

Membership of the Te Manawa Museum Society is for people interested in history, museum principles and their applications, and increasing public awareness of these through contributing to a society supporting Te Manawa. Te Manawa presents regularly changing displays in its Museum, Art Gallery and Science Centre.

They range from locally created displays such as Blood & Fire: 125 Years of the Salvation Army in Manawatū and Motorcycles Unleashed to block-busters such as the Da Vinci Machines. The Museum Society is one of the founding societies of the institution now known as Te Manawa and has a strong desire for Te Manawa, and the museum galleries in particular, to grow in their public appeal. It aims to support Te Manawa staff in developing exhibitions and organises events for members from time-to-time.

The Museum Society is registered with the Charities Commission.

Your support for the Museum Society also helps to bring special events and exhibitions to the Manawatū and encourages the development of new activities and services.

Membership benefits include: 

  • Invitations to Te Manawa events and celebrations
  • Admission to meetings and events organised by affiliated societies - The Science Centre Inc and Te Manawa Art Society
  • Admission to talks organised for affiliated societies
  • Admission to behind-the-scences tours organised for affiliated societies.
