The Museum also has an extensive collection of archival material available for the use of researchers.
The Helensville Museum is located at the Riverside Reserve, Mill Road, Helensville.
The museum has been open to the public (apart from its current transition period) since December 1970, when Hedley House, as it was known, was officially opened by then Helensville Member of Parliament, the late Peter Wilkinson.
Until then, the Society housed its exhibits in the Helensville Primary School’s old dental clinic.
In 1982 the Courthouse was acquired by the Historical Society and moved from its riverside site to join Hedley House on the Porter Crescent Reserve.
When the Society moved to the River Reserve in December 2003, a third building, the Old Schoolhouse was added to the Pioneer Village. More recently the Hector Nichols Barn was constructed.
