Lakes District Museum & Gallery

Local history & art of the region


Partly housed in the historic Bank of New Zealand building in the main street, this lovely little museum represents the whole Lakes District area with strong displays on local history, especially the gold rush days starting in the 1860s.

The attached art gallery features exhibitions by local artists. This community-minded museum is one of the prides of Arrowtown.
