East Coast Museum of Technology

ECMoT is a museum owned and operated by a non-profit volunteer organisation.

ECMoT is an all weather activity and has a varied collection of items that will suit a range of interests. There's always something new to discover.

We display and demonstrate historic artifacts from the Gisborne District, showcasing technology and its development relevant to Gisborne and the surrounding area.

Not only is the museum a place to preserve and display our history, it is also an educational facility used by groups from all sectors from early childhood through primary and secondary to tertiary organisations.

Live Days

'Live days' are when we get the machines working, have a go on the fire hose, thresh some grain, play Pong, or take a ride in an army vehicle.


We have lots of exciting projects under way at the museum. If you would like to be part of the team, come along on any Sunday and meet the rest of the volunteers or contact us.
