We’re transforming our public programming!

Due to Covid-19 situation, our public programming is on hold. However, Museum staff are thinking of ways in which we can provide public programming for all our committed visitors and their whānau, although, it may look and feel a bit different from what we’re all use to. Please keep checking for updates here and on our FB here while we undergo changes in this space. Kia ora!
