Te Awahou Nieuwe Stroom

Discover Māori, Dutch and pioneering history, in an exquisite setting. Museums, a gallery and exhibitions let you reflect on your own heritage and your family’s roots.

Explore stories that reflect the beauty of our diverse nation. Here, different strands of culture and language are woven together into one homely, exceptional place. 

Built in partnership

Tangata whenua, the Dutch immigrant community and Horowhenua District Council came together to build this beautiful facility – a showcase of what can be achieved in a multi-cultural partnership.

We’ve won a number of ‘excellence’ museum and architecture awards with our smart looks and impressive story-telling – and our unique combination with a community hub and library.
