The Faraday Centre is Napier’s specialised interactive technology museum. It began in 1979 and in 1993 merged with the Hawke’s Bay Museums Trust.
The building the Faraday Centre occupies is leased by the Hawke’s Bay Museums Trust for a very low cost. The building has been assessed as ‘earthquake-prone’ and needs to be strengthened. There has been little spent on the building over the years and even without the need for strengthening, it is in need of an upgrade to make it function safely and more effectively for staff and volunteers, visitors and the collection itself.
To make good decisions around the level of involvement and the investment we should make in the centre (which could require us to purchase and upgrade the building), we have completed a business case. The business case investigated operating and governance models as well as location options. Read the full report.
This project was completed April 2021
