Te Papa

NZ's national museum

Te Papa Museum

This is the peoples’ museum, or as Te Papa Tongarewa loosely translates, “the treasure box” – and it’s appropriate as this magnificent free facility tells the story of Aotearoa / New Zealand with an amazing collection of artefacts.

There’s a marae (meeting place), NZ and Pacific history galleries, discovery centres for children and the National Art Collection. There’s also an excellent museum shop.

Te Papa, as it is known, should not be missed.
