This Labour Weekend, the Museum is coming to you at the Viaduct Harbour! As part of Tuia 250 commemorations, we’re offering a range of amazing, hands-on free experiences sure to delight the whole family, from Friday until Monday.
Ata Hira Museum on the Move: Voyage to Aotearoa, our pop-up museum, is a fun, interactive exhibition for kids that explores Tupaia’s life in Tahiti, on board the Endeavour and in his arrival to Aotearoa. Find out more here: www.aucklandmuseum.com...
We’ll also have Native Edible Gardens – Children’s Art Interactive, where kids can cut out their own edible/medicinal native flora from the selection of templates, puzzle them together, colour them in and add them to our Native Forest. There will be guest speakers at various times, offering talks plant taste tests. Find out more here: www.aucklandmuseum.com...
The Viaduct Harbour will be abuzz as the Tuia 250 waka flotilla arrives, with concerts, kai and plenty more happening. If you’re in Tāmaki Makaurau this weekend, make sure to come and check it out!
