History House Pop-up Museum

Open to the public​

The History House Pop-Up Museum space is officially open to the public from Wednesday 5 May 2021.

The opening hours for the Museum will be 12.30pm to 5pm, Wednesday to Friday initially and these will be reviewed after the winter period. Council has signed a three-year lease with the building owner with the right of renewal.

The location of the Museum is 8 Mackay Street, Greymouth just along from the Regent Theatre. The set-up will be similar to the successful pop-up held in the ex Dick Smith building a couple of years ago and Council thinks this location is going to work well, with a highly visible frontage on the main street, the Regent Theatre in close proximity and the floodwall across the road.

Staff have been working hard on the displays for the pop-up, which currently includes interpretation panels and artefacts on mining, floods, sports, the Royal visit in 1954 and local Maori history.
