Waikato Bungalow

23 February - 15 May 2019

Free entry

In the 1950s, homes in the Waikato looked much different than they do today. The Waikato home was in a state of flux. The shedding of war time restrictions offered families the opportunity to purchase new products while they also held onto dependable items that had endured decades of use. Explore the unique advertisements, appliances, décor, and objects from the era that turned these houses into homes.


Education programmes are available for this exhibition.
