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.
MTG inhabits three buildings of distinct character – an art deco masterpiece, a modernist gem, and a light-filled gallery that looks out across the magnificent Hawke’s Bay.
MTG Hawke’s Bay is home to a nationally significant collection of art and objects that form the foundation of distinctive exhibitions and a world-class research facility. The MTG Theatre hosts a lively programme of film and performing arts.
MTG Hawke’s Bay uses its collection to tell the stories of New Zealand with assurance and style. This is the place to get a fresh perspective on the stories you know including the 1931 Hawke’s Bay earthquake. Here the art that adorns our walls and the objects that fill our homes come together alongside precious photographs and documents to creatively illustrate the life stories of successive generations of New Zealanders.
Visit our fabulous MTG shop which sells a range of MTG publications and merchandise inspired by the magic of the Museum collections.
MTG Hawke’s Bay welcomes visitors from all over the world to share in the complex and fascinating history of New Zealand through the lens of a distinct and characterful region.
