New Temporary exhibition coming soon

The next exhibition to open at Akaroa Museum is June's Wardrobe: an autobiography in outfits. Opens 04/05/2019

June's Wardrobe: an autobiography in outfits showcases nine outfits from the June Hay clothing collection. 

June is well known locally for her interest in fashion, as a dress maker, and for keeping her entire wardrobe, a collection spanning decades.

The selection in this exhibition reflects the transition June made from a young single woman in the 1940s to a wife and mother in the 1950s and 1960s.
