Scouts New Zealand National Scout Museum

14th Jul 2014

The National Scout Museum has a permanent display detailing the history of Scouting in New Zealand starting from Baden Powell's story and his founding of the movement, before covering the origins of Scouting in New Zealand.

It is in the Conference Wing of the Scouts New Zealand building complex at the "Blue Skies" Conference and Training Centre in Kaiapoi - North Canterbury New Zealand.

Kaiapoi features strongly in the New Zealand history of Scouting being where the first Scout Patrol is reputed to have been formed and early camps were held at Woodend where today a memorial cairn is located. There were many unique aspects that were introduced by Col D.Cossgrove (the first Dominion Chief Scout) such as Peace Scouts, Bull Pups, and Empire Sentinels. It then covers the various age group sections and major activities of the movement. In addition to the permanent display, the museum has an extensive specialized collection of a wide array of Scouting material.

Queries and research within the collection is undertaken by a team of volunteer staff.
