Formally known as the Coaltown Museum, the Museum of Kawatiri offers an immersive experience that celebrates the heritage and endeavours of the people of the Buller District. Unearth and discover the incredible story of Kawatiri/Westport – its past, present, and the future of this unique place. The new centre, incorporating the Coaltown Museum, consists of three key experiences: 'Wealth of the Land,' 'Early Settlement,' and 'Ecstasy of Gold.' Together, they tell an inspirational story of bravery, innovation, and human endeavour, spanning from the earliest Polynesian settlers to the present day.
