Ticket Information:

  • Admission: $5.00

Don’t pass through Kororareka Russell without seeing our wonderful exhibition of Maori korowai (cloaks), and the methods of making them.

In September, we will be displaying a beautiful selection of Maori taonga, treasures of traditional and contemporary korowai belonging to our tangata whenua.

The Korowai is a finely woven Maori cloak worn as a mantle of prestige and honour. The cloak becomes empowered by the status and mana of its owner and the mana increases when it is worn. And as you’ll discover at the Weaving and Korowai Exhibition and Workshop, they are very beautiful, highly prized treasures.
