Cambridge was named after the Duke of Cambridge, Commander in Chief of the British Army in 1864, and it was established as a frontier town after the New Zealand Wars in the Waikato came to an end.

Cambridge Museum's focus is on "Bonding People with Place."
We have an extensive collection of artefacts and archives relating to the history of Cambridge, its districts and people. Our willing and enthusiastic volunteers work with our two paid staff to build a rich archival resource of particular interest to students, family and social historians.

Our policy is to collect Cambridge-related archives, artefacts and photographs, donations of which are always welcome.

We invite you to explore our site and its different sections, and visit again.

The Waipa District Council's Education Facilitator Tereora Crane has some fun and engaging education programmes based here. Teachers can find out all about them on the Te Awamutu Museum website.

Open Weekdays 10 - 4, Sundays 10 - 2
Entry is free but a donation is always appreciated.
