What's On

There's something for everyone at MTG Hawke's Bay, home of the region's taonga and other treasures. Explore the artefacts in the Maori gallery and discover the remarkable story of the region's recovery following the devastating earthquake of 1931. The museum also showcases changing exhibitions of art, culture and social history. MTG's Century Theatre features a varied programme of events, film, live theatre and music. You'll also find fun, interactive activities for children, a weekend Drop-In Zone, workshops for young and old alike, and school holiday programmes are offered throughout the year. Our exhibitions are drawn primarily from the Hawke's Bay Museum's Trust collection. Permanent exhibits on the 1931 earthquake and the region’s stunning Taonga Māori artifacts are supported by changing exhibitions in other gallery spaces. The museum's Main Foyer also boasts an ever-changing canvas for murals, sculptures and more.
