The Whittakers Show

As well as being a concert space, Whittaker's Music Museum, Waiheke, is a museum of musical instruments, many of which can be played by visitors.

The heart and soul of the museum are Lloyd and Joan Whittaker, who are in their late eighties now but are still brimming with passion for and knowledge about the collection of instruments they founded, restored and still maintain.

Lloyd is an impressive pianist, and Joan is also very musical, as we discover during their weekly 'live show', when they welcome visitors and demonstrate many of the instruments in the museum, sharing a little of the history behind the instruments, the collection and their own lives and work.

Lloyd and Joan's Live Show is a must-see for everyone who plays music or even just likes music. The show used to run daily but now runs only on Saturdays. Grab this opportunity to meet the museum's founders and hear their story!

Discounted tickets are available.
