Current Exhibitions

The current exhibitions we have at the Charlotte Museum in addition to our regular display of artefacts are:

Viv Jones’ Cartoon Exhibition

  • These cartoons were seen in Circle magazines through the seventies and eighties containing Lesbian and Gay themes.

Activist Tee-Shirt Display

  • To wear a Tee-Shirt with Gay or Lesbian slogons on it was a brave thing to do before New Zealand finally passed legistraion in 1993 to outlaw discrimionation on the grounds of sexual orientation. During the seventies feminists used emblazoned shirts to promote, abortion, women’s and Lesbian’s rights as well as women sport’s teams and lesbian confrences. Other Shirts are hummourous that give a good feeling about ones self. Come have a look!


Pop Up Museum

If you are interested in having the popup museum to visit your group or your town then let us know!

Miriam Saphira, the Trust founder, will be bringing a display of a tee-shirt quilt, badges, magazines, information banners with  2 films and a performance.


Have a look at the drop down menus by hovering over the headings for more information on some of these events as they get closer!

Feel free to get in contact and let us know what YOU want to see @charlotte! We will do our best to make it happen!
