We decided to come into the museum after sand castle building on a fine but cool day. 6&8 year old found it interesting and enjoyed doing the activity pack.

A lot of good surfing history here, as well as general museum stuff, but the surfing certainly brought back memories for me. Staff were friendly and was well worth the $2 cost to get in.

An easy walk from Bow street to the combined Visitor Centre and Museum. Well placed displays involving major Raglan families, as well as the history of the museum. Lots of surfing memorabilia and pictures. Good research centre with lots of photos on the computer.

Very well laid-out, with interesting exhibits. There was an exhibition of surfing upstairs which was most appropriate for this surf capital of Need Zealand. How boards have changed!

ANZAC display is great as is the surfing exhibit. This museum is well worth a visit for the small $2 fee.
