Marlborough Museum is in Brayshaw Park, surrounded by all things heritage! The Museum celebrates an inspiring collection of items which tell the story of Marlborough. The Museum is known for its Wine Exhibition, Te Pokohiwi 1250 A.D. (Wairau Boulder Bank archaeology exhibition), including the Jim Eyles Collection. Marlborough history (Captain James Cook, whaling, goldmining and natural history), Victorian Rooms and the remarkable pottery collections of Elizabeth Lissaman, and Fran Maguire are also highlights! Step outside, into the rest of Brayshaw Park, and be inspired by vintage cars, vintage machinery, and of course Beavertown, our replica street scene.
