Wellington Museum

All year round

Fascinating stories of the Wellington region. Housed within a beautiful 1892 heritage building designed by leading architect Frederick de Jersey Clere.

Includes the Attic. Displaying fantastical creations from lions to flying saucers, this steampunk-styled exhibit space is a museum experience with a difference. The Attic begs you to be curious. To explore. To listen. Even to time-travel. And to be totally engaged. You never know what you’ll find.
