What people are saying:

The museum is a place where the local humanities and history are explained. In addition to the history of the Maori, a lot of pen and ink was spent here to tell the scenes of the local gold rush and the bitter life of the Chinese workers!

    Gold panning was lots of fun

    Worth a visit

    Small museum but gives you an idea of Arrow town and what life was like for early settlers. Also you visit will keep this place going for the future. Entrance fee charged at front desk.
