Special exhibitions at Mangawhai Museum have shown us how close the Second World War came to Mangawhai, shared the life of local artist John Foster through some of his works, and now it is going to take us on a journey of how New Zealanders have brought the world closer to their small far-flung nation.

This new exhibition, sponsored by Hawaiki Submarine Cable, will trace how, in a relatively short time, we have gone to waiting months for news to our current life of 24-hour wall-to-wall information and entertainment.
