Renwick Museum

Renwick Museum and Watson Memorial Library

Welcome to Renwick Museum, located in the service town of Renwick, Marlborough, New Zealand.

As part of a community who are passionate about our history and heritage, the Renwick Museum collects and displays the history of Renwick, Marlborough and the surrounding areas.

Renwick Museum display cabinets

Our museum shows a range of items from our collections in small display cabinets as you enter the museum, as well as a changing display cabinet and an Exhibitions Gallery.

On Mondays you can proceed further into the Museum and visit our ongoing book sale and the Historical Library. This Library consists of part of the original collection established by Herbert Watson nearly 100 years ago, a collection of early settlers books, children’s literature and one of the best collections of School Journals outside the National Library.

We are also available to help you research your Renwick Family History with information on over 700 families.
