The museum also includes information regarding the development of Devonport’s distinctive colonial architecture, including a hand made Kauri model villa typical of the 19th century.
Tracing Family History
An invaluable resource to the public, the museum may be of particular benefit to those interested in tracing the history of their own family or home. The museum provides public access to historical photographs, oral histories, genealogical information and other archival materials. Copies of these can be purchased.
The Devonport museum is situated on the site of the old Mt. Cambria quarry, today known as Mt. Cambria reserve. The peaceful and green surroundings of the reserve make it a popular location for weddings or a picnic after looking around the museum.
