Museum & Archives:
When the Papatoetoe Historical Society started in 1988 the most important activity was to gather as much of the district’s history as possible, before it was lost for ever. After 20 years we have collected a wide range of information and artefacts, all of which may be viewed at our museum which is open each Wednesday from 10 am to 12 noon, and the first Sunday in the month from 2-4pm. Other times by special arrangement for group tours.
The museum is situated at:
The archives has photographs, books and booklets on many aspects of local history. Covering further afield are plans, posters, maps, and pictures of Auckland and other parts of New Zealand.
