Museum Shop

The Museum shop features a wide range of unusual gifts. Items include bone carvings, scrimshaw, greenstone (pounamu) and paua jewellery as well as cards and paintings. It is a great place to get gifts, birthday presents or a souvenir of your visit to the Bay of Islands.

The Museum has a policy of reprinting historic books about our area.
