Welcome to the website of the Ashburton History Museum. Our aim is to tell the story of our ancient town and its surroundings through a lively collection of artefacts, pictures and displays. We want to be the first port of call for anyone interested in finding out how Ashburton came to be, together with the lives, occupations and amusements of its townspeople over the centuries.

Our little building in the heart of the town, which at one time was a brush factory and later a hair salon, houses a good deal of our past - so much in fact that we can’t display it all at once, but we hope this presentation will give you a taster of what we can offer, and we’d love you to visit or contact us when you want to discover more.
