A new way to report lost property to Police

New Zealand Police

Lost something? You can now report lost property to Police at police.govt.nz. Whether it’s your phone, a wallet or your keys that you’ve lost, you can now let Police know without picking up the phone. As well as reporting lost property, you can also report non-emergencies like theft, vandalism and shoplifting online, as well as get updates on a Police report you’ve already made. Just remember, always call 111 in event of an emergency. Find out more here. Find out more

Celebrating 90 years

The Team from Auckland Museum

Imagine receiving this pamphlet in your letterbox. Would you be compelled to donate?

In 1923 this was sent out to Auckland's citizens, requesting help to raise the remaining £50,000 of the total £200,000 which was needed to build the new Auckland War Memorial Museum. It included a call to donate, initial drawings of the planned Museum and a list of early donors.

The people of Auckland came through and all the funds were raised! The new Auckland Museum was opened on 28 November 1929.

We’re celebrating 90 years of Auckland Museum in Auckland Domain. Read more about the origins of the building here.
