Uniquely, most of The Kauri Museum’s collection is already on display. However, the Museum does need to protect its textiles and documents collection, bringing these out for limited display. The Kauri Museum’s textiles collection comes straight from community donations and each has its own family story. Especially, the collection includes an incredible collection of family wedding dresses and an amazing array of shoes dating back to the 1800’s. The textiles collection is carefully tended to by the Museum’s volunteers, including a professional milliner. The Museum’s document archive and photography storage is archived together with cataloguing records and vaulted in fire cells.
