Ka mua ka muri. Our past is our future;

Our logo was designed by Leigh Bosch and was approved by the museum’s kaumatua of the time, the late Haahi Walker. The left half of the logo represents our Māori history with the koru representing the food sources in the Kaipara and also the area’s general development. The right half of the logo represents two cultures existing togther, with the wheel  and the wi-fi emblem showing ongoing development.
