Photo Essay- The Te Awamutu Museum

As I said in my last post, the Te Awamutu Museum is a good as any museum I have seen in all my travels. I was there to see the exhibits on early Maori History and the Finn Brothers (Te Awamutu is their hometown), but I was impressed by all exhibits in the museum.

    Interesting post, we never seem to learn from our mistakes and history does tend to repeat itself. You are educating me and I’m really enjoying it!xxxxx

    An interesting sign for the entrance “Where history never repeats”. Hopefully if we learn from history we won’t make the same awful mistakes our ancestors made.

      SO TRUE! That is one of the main upsides to studying history- that we may learn from the mistakes of our past and not repeat them. Too bad this is often easier said than done.
