The Petone Settlers Blog

Welcome to the Petone Settlers Museum, a little gem on the shores of Wellington’s ever-changing harbour. The museum shares tales of settlers making new lives, from the historic meeting of the great Te Atiawa chiefs, Te Wharepouri and Te Puni, and the first British settlers, on Pito-one’s shores in 1840 to the establishment of Petone as a thriving township.

This blog is a chance to share behind the scenes with you. Join us to uncover the secret stories of the objects in our collection, add your knowledge to the mix, and find out who our Visitor of the Week is. You might even be our Visitor of the Week!
