The Cob Cottage Museum was built during the 1860s and is constructed out of clay, straw and tussock. Historical domestic items of interest are displayed. The former Waiau Presbyterian Church, located at the rear of the Cob Cottage, holds a permanent display of the Society’s Photographic Collection. From time to time the Society hosts a static display which showcases the Society’s Collection.
