Our Society was founded back in 1930, when there were two organizations, namely the Yugoslav Club Inc and the Yugoslav Benevolent Society Inc which later joined to become the Yugoslav Society Inc. With the demise of Yugoslavia as a country, the Society changed its name to the Dalmatinsko Kulturno Drustvo Inc. ( Dalmatian Cultural Society Inc).

The Dalmatian Cultural Society caters not only for the Dalmatian Community in New Zealand, but also those who identify as Croatians (Dalmatia being part of modern day Croatia) as well as for those peoples, who were part of what constituted the former Yugoslavia. All of the aforementioned, together with their descendants are catered for within our Society.

From its modest beginnings with Clubrooms in the heart of the city, the Society is now situated about 3km from downtown Auckland. The premises we own and occupy consist of three levels, with about 50% (approximately 1600 sq.m) dedicated to Society activities and the balance leased out to other companies. With recent upgrading, we can now boast of having, possibly the most modern and up to date premises, occupied by any ethnic Society in New Zealand.

Housed in the Museum are large Kauri gum collections, national costumes, rare books, artefacts, cemetery and naturalisation records. Also historical photos, newspaper clippings, rare maps, family records and a collection of short stories written by members. There is a guest speaker at meetings held on the 2nd Tuesday evening of each month.
