Have you ever polished kauri gum from a raw lump into a shining golden nugget? The Kauri Museum has a new ‘hands on’ gum polishing experience for visitors to enjoy. Our kauri gum polisher Thelma can show you how it’s done. Gum polishing packs are also available in the Museum shop for $15. These make great gifts for all the family.

This activity is perfect for school groups and is a very rewarding experience for all ages. Little ones can also join in the fun!
