Steampunk Weekend! While there is a separate themed market in the adjacent St James Church Hall, a huge number of stallholders with a focus on the craze have booked in for Thames Market this Saturday - new ones and regular ones. They're just too many to list. You need to come down and see for yourself. And because it's this special weekend we are going until 1 pm. Be ready to park some way away as Pollen Street will be closed for the best part of the morning for the big Steampunk parade.
Want to hit the road and seeking inspiration to go somewhere new in the central North Island? Help is just a click away!
We’ve done the hard work for you creating over 60 fantastic breaks you can use to plan that quick weekend away, a short break, or take that long-awaited roadie.
We give you the ideas – you just choose when and where, and pack the car. Time to get planning!
Tuesday May 18th is INTERNATIONAL MUSEUM DAY and the theme for 2021 is “RECOVER and REIMAGINE”.
Just like all Museums around the world, Thames Museum has seen visitor numbers drop due to international travel restrictions. As we actively engage more with our community the response from Thamesites has been heart-warming. We really appreciate all the visits and encouragement we are getting from locals. Thank you, wonderful people! You are keeping us going.
“Reimagining” our museum spaces, we have set up activities for children and broadened our free family history research resources. Our displays are constantly evolving.
Thames Museum is run entirely by volunteers. If you would like to join our volunteer teams, please call in or phone 0278686072. We’re open Friday to Wednesday, 10am to 3pm.
