Russell Museum aims to reflect the history of the town and to support historic preservation. The museum’s collection is important in promoting New Zealand culture because Russell – then named Kororareka – lay at the threshold of the earliest connection between the two worlds of Maori and Pakeha. The collection dates from before then and is always being added to.
