In August 1919, the Taranaki Museum opened its doors for the first time.Whare Kahurangi (meaning house of treasured possessions) celebrates 100 years of collecting our region's history, from the foundation gift of Māori taonga by William Henry Skinner through to the present day.Featuring objects from across Puke Ariki's collections, this exhibition examines how we collect, what stories we tell and what the museum might look like in another 100 years.
