The Lion & Tusk - Museum of the Rhodesian Services Association was establised 1 May 2018. It is located at Unit 10, 14 Portside Drive, Mount Maunganui, New Zealand. It houses our collection of artefacts, Rolls of Honour, books and journals as well as the CQ Store. It is our administration hub and focal point for socialising and for Remembrance Day gatherings.

  • The Lion and Tusk Museum is a collection of historical, cultural, artistic and scientific information displays, video, photos and writings.
  • These depict Rhodesia, and Rhodesians of all races, from the late 19th century until the country's transition to Zimbabwe in 1980.
  • Neither the museum management nor its team of volunteers have political, racial or gender-specific agendas; they unreservedly condemn any scandal-mongering misconceptions to the contrary.

We are grateful for community support from TECT
