Night at the Museum - Landlubbers to Scurvy Dogs

The Team from Auckland Museum

Ahoy ye families!

Grab a torch and join our adventurers and suffer a sailor’s life on-board, as we navigate the southern oceans with Cook and company.

It’s going to be all hands on deck as you learn how to behave in His Majesty’s Royal Navy – avoid the dreaded cat o’ nine tails and sample some delightful 18th century naval food. Mmmm, pease porridge, anyone?

Discover stories and traditions of tangata whenua as encountered by that first bewildered bunch of seafarers. And how do you communicate if you don’t speak the same language? Try to dodge muddles and mix-ups once we reach the Pacific.

● TUE 1, WED 2, THU 3, SUN 6, FRI 11 & SUN 13 OCT, 6PM - 8.30PM​
● $25 EARLYBIRD (UNTIL 8 SEP), $30 GENERAL ADMISSION
