Tudor Collins: Man of Many Faces
Opens 9 December 2016. Our special exhibition dives into the world of renowned photographer Tudor Collins. Famous for capturing an essence of early New Zealand through his skill with photography, Tudor led a varied life, pursuing a number of careers including soldier, sailor, entrepreneur, bushman and farmer. Take a glimpse into Tudor’s past through an amazing collection of photographs and personal items from the collections of The Kauri Museum, the National Museum of the Royal New Zealand Navy, Auckland War Memorial Museum, Albertland & Districts Museum and Warkworth Districts Museum.
Entry to the exhibition is free with admission to The Kauri Museum
Christmas at Totara House
For the Smith Family of Totara House, Christmas meant decorating the house with fresh flowers from the garden and the most advantageous placement of a mountain of Christmas cards. In a nod to that tradition but incorporating a modern twist, the Friends of The Kauri Museum, assisted by pupils from Matakohe, Paparoa, Ruawai and Tinopai Schools, have been crafting traditional and non-traditional Christmas decorations. The walls and halls of Totara House will be decked with these for a short period in December. Come and join us for this special occasion and help us keep the spirit of Totara House alive with all proceeds to the Totara House Preservation Fund.
