The Faraday Centre

Looking for things to do in NAPIER ?

The Faraday Centre in Napier, is Hawke's Bay's Museum of Technology.  It's a place of discovery where history comes alive through hands on experience.  Rather than read and look at pieces of history, we encourage you to touch, hold items, pull levers and truly discover how things would've been in days gone by.  Experience history your way.

We remain open during COVID-19 Alert Level 1.  As always, the safety and wellbeing of our customers, team members and community continues to be our top priority.  We want to assure you that we’re taking the necessary precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 as outlined in the Ministry of Health and government guidelines.
