Membership - the perfect gift

Give someone you love a piece of history.  A Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga membership is packed with great benefits, is amazing value for money and helps protect heritage at the same time.  What more could you ask?!

Membership during lockdown

Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga members are our financial and moral lifeblood and your support of our work through membership and donations is crucial.  Now, more than ever, we need your support and understanding.

As you might expect at Alert Levels 3 and 4, the membership team is working from home so processing time for standard membership (new and renewing), magazine-only subscriptions and donations at this time may be a little slower than usual.  We regret that we cannot post cards and other materials to you until we are back in the office.  Mail delivery is also affected by the country's response to Covid-19 with restricting mail to essential services during lockdown.

Soft copies of many of our publications are available in the Resources section of our website. 

If you have not provided us with your email address or signed up to our monthly newsletter Heritage this Month, please just email our Membership Advisor on to securely provide your name and email address.  Read our Privacy Policy.

Membership starts from just $45 per annum and includes:

  • Free normal admission to all 45 properties nationwide from the earliest historic places of the Far North to the farming heritage of the Deep South
  • Subscription to the mighty Heritage New Zealand magazine, our quarterly award-winning 56-page, full colour publication
  • The Members Club series of member-only events, behind-the-scenes tours, webinars, and exclusive digital content - delivered each month straight to your inbox
  • 10% off merchandise at our properties and in our online shop
  • Free or reduced admission* to literally hundreds of heritage properties overseas including the global National Trust movement
  • Great discounts at cultural attractions (like the NZ Symphony Orchestra), domestic and overseas travel, accommodation, tourist hotspots and retail outlets like Resene Paints.

* Surcharges may apply for special events, exhibitions and the use of other amenities.  Parking is not included.

And the best bit?  Knowing your membership directly helps to protect heritage.
