MTG Hawke's Bay
MTG Hawke’s Bay is at home in the heart of Napier forming the cultural centre of this stylish city for over 150 years. MTG Hawke’s Bay is a place where people, objects and ideas meet.
The museum in Napier is well worth a visit. You can learn about Maori history and culture as well as more recent events like the 1931 earthquake and the rebuilding of Napier and Hastings in the Art Deco style. It's not a big museum but has some interesting stuff.
Fascinating museum. Something for everyone. Fifteen minutes drive from Seafield View.
Currently Free of charge. There is a very good permanent display on Napier Earthquake, after which the city was rebuild in the Art Deco Style. Also displays highlighting our rich Maori Heritage.
