PLAN YOUR VISIT

YOUR HISTORY – YOUR STORIES – YOUR MUSEUM

Aotearoa New Zealand is in ‘RED’ as part of the new COVID-19 Protection Framework (traffic lights). What does this mean for our visitors?

At this time all visitors are asked to wear a mask and groups of 10 people or more, need to book in with our reception to ensure management within the Museum is effortless and unencumbered for everyone. Phone 07 872 0085 to book groups.

This has been put in place with consideration for the on-going health and safety of our visitors, staff, and community. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we all adjust to these new circumstances.
