The Picton Museum on London Quay has been a feature of the town for almost 60 years. The present building was constructed in 1990 and houses a busy display of whaling, maritime and historical artifacts. Items on display are well annotated, and the collection of local and family histories is an important attribute of the Museum. The Museum is built on the site of the original Waitohi Pa and local iwi are supportive of the Museum being on this important site. It is affiliated with "Museums of Aotearoa" and has good contacts with other regional and national museums. There is good and on-going support and communication with Te Papa National Services Te Paerangi. We are also grateful for an annual subsidy from Marlborough District Council.
