In 1985 the Takaka Museum Committee was formed to purchase a private collection of material considered to have significant educational value pertaining to the history of Golden Bay. The archives hold information on Golden Bay families, local industries and a collection of local photographs. Highlights are displays on the conchology and geology of New Zealand, and model ships the Heemskerck and Zeehaen which form part of the diorama of Abel Tasman's encounter with Maori warriors in Wainui Bay in 1642 (under construction).

The gallery is housed in the former Takaka Post Office, built in 1899, and features local art and craft, paintings and regular exhibitions.
