The Karaka Historical Society Inc. was formed in 1997 with the objective of preserving the history of the area. This small group of volunteers from the wider Karaka community have taken the Karaka Museum from humble beginnings under the stage of the War Memorial Hall, to the modern purpose built Museum now located alongside the hall on Blackbridge Road.

Karaka Museum:

Farming equipment, tools, maps and photographs, household items, war artefacts and memorabilia, family histories, musical instruments, toys, clothing, handwork, and the histories of St Margarets Church, Karaka and Te Hihi Schools.

Blackbridge Road next to the Karaka War Memorial Hall

Opening Hours:
2nd Sunday of each month from 1 - 3pm

4th Wednesday of each month from 10am - 12 noon

We also open by appointment:
Arrange a time for your club or group to visit. We can organise a programme that suits your needs. We welcome pre-school and school groups. Arrange a meeting to discuss your curriculum requirements.
