The Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa is New Zealand’s national museum, located in Wellington. Six storeys of cutting-edge interactive exhibitions housed in an architectural wonder of a building. Exciting events all year round for adults and kids!
Te Papa Tongarewa translates literally to ‘container of treasures’. A fuller interpretation is ‘our container of treasured things and people that spring from mother earth here in New Zealand’. A feature exhibition Gallipoli: The Scale of Our War combines the world of museums with the world-class creative artistry of Weta Workshop, to immerse you in the eight-month Gallipoli campaign. The ground-breaking exhibition tells the story through the eyes and words of eight ordinary New Zealanders who found themselves in extraordinary circumstances. Each one is captured frozen in a moment of time on a monumental scale – 2.4 times human size. On until 25 Apr 2025.
Free with charges for some short term exhibitions or events
