We are thrilled to let you know that the Te Awamutu Museum is open at Alert Level 2 from 10am to 4pm Mon - Fri and 10am - 2pm Sat.

Taking care of our community at Alert Level 2

Visitors will be asked to scan our QR code when they enter, or provide their name and contact details to staff if they cannot use the QR code. It is a Government requirement that you keep a record of where you have been (at all Alert Levels) so contact tracing can happen quickly in the event of a Covid-19 outbreak.

While visiting Te Awamutu Museum, you'll need to maintain two-metre physical distancing from other people. To make sure we can keep visitors at a safe distance as they move through the Museum, numbers will be limited to a total of 10 inside the Museum at one time with other limits on specific galleries.

Government requirements mean that it is mandatory for staff and visitors to wear a face covering in public areas at Te Awamutu Museum. This is to keep you, your whānau, and the community safe.
