One of Devonport's historic churches in the grounds of the Mt. Cambria gardens and reserve houses this museum traces the area's history through a large collection of photographs and artefacts.

Travel through time from Mäori to early European settlement, the arrival of the ship building industry, transport, and developments in architecture. Displays include a model of the Devonport peninsula before settlement, a model Victorian villa, and Mäori and European items found in the area.

The museum also houses records from Devonport's institutions, clubs and events, video and film images, and an extensive shell collection.

Entry is free, though donations are very welcome.

There is parking on the site and a new ramp for easy access to the front door.

Come and have a picnic at the beautiful peaceful Mt Cambria Reserve or ride your bike from the ferry and then stroll next door to the Museum.

Group visits by arrangement. Phone 094452661
