Welcome to the Te Aroha & District Museum
Te Aroha & District Museum Society Inc.
Te Aroha & District Museum is located in the Cadman Bathhouse, The Domain, Te Aroha. The buildings in the domain form the only complete Edwardian Domain in New Zealand.
Opened in 1898, the bathhouse was the first building commissioned especially for tourists - so has been called "The birth place of tourism in New Zealand".
In 1971 Te Aroha Mayor, Henry Skidmore, started the museum, which is still growing and developing today. We have a large and varied collection of which 75% is display at any one time. Special exhibitions are staged twice a year.
