Fundraising for Okains Bay Māori and Colonial Museum


Every piece in the Okains Bay Museum collection has a story to tell. Each object is connected to humanity, in its shaping, making or discovery.

The aim of this project is to uncover and tell the stories attached to the collections in an accessible way. Utilising a mobile device, QR codes and museum-wide internet, visitors will be able to access deep information on pieces in the collection and enrich their experience.

The Museum receives overwhelmingly positive feedback for its collections of national significance. However, there is a pressing need for “more detailed descriptions” and the funding to do them. With over 20k pieces in the museum, this appears almost insurmountable. But if we begin the journey of discovering, unlocking and telling these stories, then we can preserve information on aspects of the provenance of the collection before it is lost with the passing of people and time.
