The Tawhiti Museum is a truly unique enterprise. The creation of artist Nigel Ogle, its attention to detail is simply stunning.
Widely acclaimed as the best private museum in the country, the museum uses life size exhibits and scale models to present our heritage in a series of super realistic and engaging displays.
The museum is divided into a series of themed galleries, each using scale and life sized models as well as artifacts, photos and test. Whether the subject is shipping, farming, railways of just a small corner of a colonial kitchen, the attention given to research and detail is the same. The settings and figures combine to create strong three-dimensional images of our past.
