The Cook display, complete with mannequins depicting Joseph Banks, botanist, a cabin boy and Cook in full dress uniforms in a big cabin on his ship, Endeavour, is a highlight of the museum.

Other displays include Mäori, maritime (particularly of HMS Buffalo), military, a growing native and imported bird and animal display, and local community history.

A growing reference system and library caters for queries from researchers, the general public and schools.
