Wanganui Collegiate School Museum Trust Incorporated pursuant to the Charitable Trusts Act 1957

The Wanganui Collegiate School was founded in 1854 and has over 156 years of colourful history, much of which is preserved in the School Museum for the enjoyment of the community.

The collection consists of papers, plans, documents, trophies, minute books, memorabilia, uniforms, programmes photos and DVDs of drama and musical productions, sporting records, Old Boys' war records, newspaper clippings and many wonderful photographs.

All record the evolution and progress of Wanganui Collegiate School from the very early days of the 'First School' established in 1854, to the 'Old School' (1870-1910) through to the 'New School' on the present site from 1911 to today.

A full collection of the School magazine, the 'Collegian', from the first issue in 1883 to the present day gives a great insight into the life and times at the School and Wanganui.
