Caving Exhibits

The award winning Waitomo Caves Discovery Centre is New Zealand’s only Speleological Museum containing everything you need to know about caves, cave creatures, and the history of caving in New Zealand.

Not only are the displays cave themed – you can also crawl, climb and squeeze through the “cave crawl”, cracks and squeezes throughout the Discovery Centre.

The Discovery Centre houses the taonga of the local iwi for safe keeping, as well as a nationally significant collection of fossils and sub-fossils, and New Zealand’s only Speleological Library.
