Switzers Waikaia Museum

The nucleus of the collection held by Switzer’s (Waikaia) museum Inc. was brought together for Waikaia’s 125th Centennial Jubilee and installed in the present building complex in 1988. This nucleus has grown to around 2200 generalised social history objects including material relative to high country farming and the area’s gold mining past and associated Chinese settlement. The museum also holds 2800 bottles (not including the 20,000 bottles that have been used in the construction of a bottle house attached to the museum) and archives (including original documents and photographs) relative to the Switzer’s/Waikaia area).
