It’s with some pride and anticipation we launch our new website.

Here we are in August 2017 and our museum can be displayed in today’s online technology. Yet the Porirua Hospital Museum and Resource Centre is housed in the hospital’s old F-Ward, which was built in 1909. Incidentally, 1909 is the year Ernest Shackelton found the magnetic south pole and the USA sold its first aeroplane.

Much has happened in the world since 1909, as it has within the precincts of Porirua’s historic hospital. That’s the reason this facility is very worth a visit.

We certainly hope you drop by soon and please, do come back to this website and keep in touch with our updates.
