With Wellington Anniversary fast approaching we’ve been thinking about the history of our special place: Pito-one.
Our whare was opened on 22 January 1840 to commemorate the arrival of the first British immigrants to Pito-one’s shores in 1840. Before we were a museum, we were a bathing pavilion and enjoyed being a part of Petone’s beach scene.
Today, we are a proud member of Petone’s heritage community. Every day, we explore and celebrate the many stories of arrival and achievement in and around the Hutt Valley. From the important chiefs Te Puni and Te Wharepōuri, to today’s wonder wāhine – we have a wealth of stories to share, and we love hearing your memories as well.
To celebrate our birthday, we are inviting you on a special tour exploring the story of our whare and how it came to be.
11am – 11.30am
Monday 22 January
Bookings essential (there will be birthday cake)
Remember, we are open every day this summer 10am – 4pm
