The Te Awamutu Museum was the first museum within the Waikato and is a nationally-registered archival repository.

Established in 1935 the Te Awamutu Museum showcases the rich social history of Waipa District in the Waikato, New Zealand.

The museum is home to the internationally significant taonga Uenuku, the Finn Brothers, the New Zealand Wars and Waikato Campaign collections.

A range of services are provided, including education for primary and secondary schools through the Learning Experiences Outside The Classroom programmes, an increasing variety of public programmes and workshops, as well as changing displays and exhibitions.
