Early pioneer photographs and an exhibition focused on the importance of shipping in early Opotiki occupy the mezzanine floor, while twelve heritage rooms trace history from the arrival of pioneers to the 1930s on the Elvira Sundell third floor, along with the Whakatohea Research and Archives Taonga (Treasures of the past).

The Opotiki Museum is now known as the Opotiki Heritage and Agricultural Society. With themed rooms of yesteryear it is a trip down memory lane for older visitors and a real eye opener for young people.
