This is the third, and final exhibition in our treasures of our community. The next two months we are highlighting the collection of Laurie Canton.

Laurie’s abiding interest in the history of the region led to him becoming a founding member and patron of Motueka District Museum.

He began with his own private museum: it started as a hobby and for many years he collected items which he then displayed in his garage. The collection steadily grew, both in number and type of items, eventually becoming large and diverse with significant Maori and European artefacts.

Subsequently the Canton Family donated his collection to the museum and objects from that collection are now displayed here. We are very grateful for their generosity.

Our main exhibition room was named in his honour and is always referred to as the Canton Room.
