MTG Hawke's Bay - Musuem Theatre Gallery

Home to Hawke's Bays great treasures: MTG Hawkes's Bay is a place of stories, heritage, art and artefacts - a place where visitors can explore and enjoy New Zealand's vibrant cultural history. MTG Hawkes Bay re-opened in September 2013 after an extensive rebuild. 

The redevelopment project preserved the significant existing buildings on the museum site; integrating heritage architecture and creating a new wing, which will draw visitors to what will be the major cultural amenity for the region.

Located in the heart of Napier, the MTG inhabits three buildings of distinct character – an art deco masterpiece, a modernist gem, and a light-filled gallery that looks out across the magnificent Hawke’s Bay.

MTG Hawke's Bay has a number of unique venue hire spaces available for events, meetings, conferences and private functions. MTG has a theatre, education suite, foyer and a range of gallery spaces available to suit every event requirement.

The light filled foyer and galleries overlook the cultural precinct of Napier including the Soundshell, Dome and the Art Deco Masonic Hotel and are the perfect places to hold a cocktail function.

The MTG Century Theatre is Hawke’s Bay’s premier mid-sized venue ideal for a conference, launch, lecture or a film, music or theatrical event. The Theatre has been designed with chamber music concerts in mind and has a Steinway piano available. It has superb acoustics, air-conditioning and tiered seating for 330 and is host to both national and international conferences that want an auditorium of this size, together with the special ambience of a Museum.

The MTG galleries and foyer spaces are open to the public 364 days of the year. Functions in these spaces can be booked for hire outside normal opening hours. The education suite is also available weekends during opening hours.

We offer delegate, partners and groups a special rate for Museum entry and we can offer a range of gifts for delegates to remember their visit to Hawke’s Bay.

The MTG team looks forward to working closely with you to ensure your conference, meeting or event is a success.
