Museum Governance Group
As part of its Long-term Plan deliberations, the Invercargill City Council resolved to establish a governance group to provide advice on reimagining the Museum.
The He Waka Tuia transitional Art + Museum space is a joint initiative between the Invercargill Public Art Gallery and the Southland Museum and Art Gallery.
It is to ensure that our local community and visitors can still access our collections, experience our history and stories and appreciate a variety of cultural endeavours, delivered in innovative and experiemental ways.
Mon – Friday: 10am – 5pm
Saturday: 10am – 2pm
Sunday: 11am – 3pm
Closed Good Friday and Christmas Day.
