Black's Point Museum 

The museum is situated about 2km from Reefton in the heart of Blacks Point. The museum building is a piece of history in its own right and is one of many in the Reefton area to be lovingly maintained since pioneering times. The building, constructed of pit-sawn timber, was formerly the old Wesleyan Methodist Church and dates back to 1876.

Once you step inside you will find a fascinating collection, housing thousands of exhibits that display the rich and diverse history of an iconic West Coast town.  Blacks Point Museum, records the way of life in a mining town and the mural on the left, painted by local resident and well-known cinematographer Alun Bollinger, is a great depiction of this history.

The museum features school records, cemetery records, town directories, historical photos, artefacts, family trees, books and all kinds of mining memorabilia.
