An exhibition celebrating the extraordinary life of Joseph Gordon Coates.
17 October 2014 - 31 May 2016

The Kauri Museum invites you to take a step back in time and discover the story behind one of the makers of modern New Zealand: Joseph Gordon Coates.

Tall and handsome, this affable war hero embodied modernity – he was the ‘jazz premier’ of New Zealand politics. Following a 1925 presidential-style election campaign, voters chose to take their 'Coats off with Coates', just three years later they hung him out to dry. The Kauri Museum is proud to present a special exhibition exploring the extraordinary life and achievements of this local hero, war hero and national hero: Joseph Gordon Coates, the man who got things done.
