Have you heard our fantastic news?: Nelson Provincial Museum

Have you heard our fantastic news? A Rātā Foundation grant has tipped funds raised over the halfway mark for our new museum building!
Nelson Provincial Museum’s Archives Research and Collections (ARC) facility is one step closer to construction thanks to a grant of half a million dollars from Rātā Foundation. To be located on Church Street in Nelson’s city centre, the new ARC facility will ensure the Nelson Tasman regional heritage collection, currently in the damaged Isel Park Research facility, is cared for appropriately and is easily accessible to the community.
Rātā Foundation Chief Executive Leighton Evans says the South Island funder is pleased to support Nelson Provincial Museum to share the unique history and heritage of the region.
“This new facility will bring students, whānau and the community closer to the history of Nelson-Tasman, improving learning opportunities and connection to important taonga,” says Evans.
“We look forward to walking alongside Nelson Provincial Museum as they create a more accessible, fit-for-purpose space to protect and share their heritage collection, fostering a sense of belonging and cultural connection.”
