Te Papa, New Zealand’s bold and innovative national museum is set in a breathtaking location on Wellington’s beautiful waterfront.
Discover a treasured Maori art tradition that spans three centuries. A guided tour with an experienced, knowledgeable guide is a great way to explore Te Papa. As well as being fun, adds depth to the experience, increases understanding and helps orient the first time visitor.
The Maori words “Te Papa Tongarewa” can be translated to mean ‘a container in which precious objects are held’. So when you visit Te Papa, you will be entering a massive, six-storey treasure box.
Te Papa also is home to the Worlds Largest Squid frozen on ice, soon to be defrosted for further research.
