We are participating in the Museums Aotearoa National Visitor Survey for 2016 this week!

If you have been meaning to pop in and see what’s new, this is the week to do it!

We want as many people as possible to give us their feedback, as the data collected by this survey is not only used by us, but by museums around the country.

It only takes 5 mins and is entirely anonymous.

Dig It at Te Awamutu Museum July 2015

Our Holiday Programme, Dig It was hugely successful! Check out the comment from parents and some of the images below! For a full gallery of images, check out our Facebook page.

“We thoroughly enjoyed the time here learning about archaeology. The presentation was fun, friendly, informative and interactive. We have really appreciated all your time an effort you put in to making this so interesting. Thank you.”

“This was an amazing holiday program for the kids. They had a blast and learnt so much.”

“Excellently organised and delivered 3 days. Great use of visual, audio and kinesthetic learning opportunities.Obviously lots of time and effort was put into preparing the dig sites, booklets and resource packs for the tamariki. The timing of the afternoon (3 hours) with a break was well thought out. All the staff were excellent with a bunch of high energy children, diverting them with activities and games and refocusing them on activities…Well done TA Museum what a great way to expose future generations to appreciate and treasure things of the past.”
