Home Entertainment in the 1900s

Kapiti Coast’s own museum is the listed historic place building that housed the Waikanae Post Office from 1908. Come and discover our new exhibit, and much more.

As well as our comprehensive displays showing aspects of how we lived in the 1900s, and how the Kapiti Coast has developed since the 1800s, we have a new display featuring home entertainment, from Edison cartridge music to compact discs.
