The Hokitika Museum is a regional museum located in the heart of Westland and housed in the historic Carnegie Building.

The rugged and isolated West Coast has a fascinating history of adventure and fortitude. Come and see for yourself!

Hokitika Museum’s WW100 exhibition OUR BOYS AT GALLIPOLI is open!

The exhibition includes a collection of portraits and silhouettes that remember the Westland men

who were at Gallipoli. So far there are 176 names. Where a photograph could not be located

a silhouette has been used but we are hopeful that these can be replaced by an actual photo.

You can see the photos and add comments or information in Hokitika Museum’s on-line Gallipoli album here – www.flickr.com/photos/hokitikamuseum
