The trust emphasises the supreme achievement of the city in reviving itself after the devastating earthquake that tore it apart in February 1931. For tourists, the Trust provides the facility of various tours, whether walking, bus or cruise. Check out which one is for you. History lessons don’t get more fun than this.

Art Deco Trust, Napier Reviews
Watched the film about the earthquake in the cinema & at the back & had a guided tour of the town by a volunteer guide Pamela. So interesting learning about the history & being shown which shops/banks had original glass work. Our tour was pretty booked.
Love to spend time wandering this store. Perfect for gift shopping. A real taste of Napier’s Art Deco history . Friendly and helpful staff . A Napier city must do .
It was great to walk round while dressed in Art Deco clothes and admire everything
Wonderful exhibition of cubist art forms, the section on kereru station and the contributions of the Nelson family should be a must see for any Hawke's bay citizen.
they offer and amazing "art deco" tour
