Well it's not exactly a "new" look but it is spruced up and looking great. The moss is gone, gaps filled, a silicon coating put on to protect the bricks and the lettering (Motueka High School) now painted and stands out. The scaffolding drew a lot of attention and made the museum "visible", in as much as locals actually noticed the building and were keen to find out what was going on. Here's to the next hundred years.
Our tribute to those in our district who served in WWI and those left behind continues. Here are some more photographs of precious items that have been lent to the museum for this exhibition. We thank the families for their generosity. The diary that saved a life
It is with sadness that we have to record the passing of one of the most stalwart supporters and workers for the Museum, the Historical Association, the Genealogy Society and the town of Motueka and the TDC. We will miss the sharp intelligence, insights and great loyalty of PATRICIA O'SHEA No more pain and suffering. REST IN PEACE
