Cromwell Museum Trust

BOARDS / COMMITTEES - Commitee members / administration assistants

Organisation Summary

The Cromwell Museum Trust was formed early in 2014 as a joint initiative of the Otago Goldfields Heritage Trust and the Cromwell Geneology group. The need for the Cromwell Museum Trust arose when CODC decided to relocate the Cromwell I-Site, and the Trust saw an opportunity to expand and manage the existing museum space. From 22 December 2014 the I-Site will relocate and the new museum will open 7 days a week between 10am and 4pm statutory holidays excluded.
