Established in 2003, Otaki Museum is a small local museum on Otaki's Main Street. Changing exhibitions display the town's rich past. 

Otaki Museum houses a comprehensive range of items significant to the history of Otaki and the surrounding district. The Museum collects objects, stories, and images of interest, and maintains an extensive photo collection and many early copies of the town's newspaper, the Otaki Mail. It is also home to archival material relating to the town and its people, including records from Otaki School and the Otaki Borough Council. You can also discover Otaki’s stories through the Museum’s changing exhibition programme.

Admission is free, and the museum is open Thursday to Saturday (during exhibitions) from 10-2pm.
