The McCahon House Trust

The McCahon House Trust was established in 1998 to recognise the life and art of Colin McCahon.

They run a prestigious artist's residency and have preserved the McCahon House as a place for the public to visit. The administration team has an office on Level 1 of Lopdell House.


McCahon House is a small museum with big stories to tell

The house at 67 Otitori Bay Road has been restored to preserve the appearance and character it had at the end of the 1950s when the McCahon family left.

Inside the walls of this small house, surrounded by towering kauri and native bush, artist Colin McCahon painted some of his best-known works. Now you can step inside this slice of McCahon’s life, see the Titirangi landscape that inspired him and hear first-hand stories of the artist and his life.
