Celebrating Everything Polish

Museum of Wellington City & Sea stages a Celebration of Everything Polish this October to mark the 70th anniversary of the arrival of New Zealand’s first refugees in November 1944.  The 733 Polish children and their 102 guardians came to Wellington before moving to a camp in Pahiatua after a harrowing journey from Poland through Russia and Iran.

Alongside a private reunion for the remaining 340 Polish children, the Museum will host a series of events and a photo exhibition as part of a week-long festival to mark the occasion.

In collaboration with Pahiatua Polish children's community in New Zealand, The Polish Association of New Zealand, the Embassy of the Republic of Poland, Ngā Taonga Sound and Vision, Wellington City Council and Museum of Wellington City & Sea.

Friday 31 October

The Big Halloween

Capital E and the Museum present a frightful Halloween special for kids!

Unearth the hidden treasure and spooky secrets of Chaos Cove – a safe sanctuary for littlies. Test your nerve and explore Eerie Island where sea shanties fill the air and pirates roam unguarded. Huddle together in the Ghoul’s Galley (you’ll be safe there), but don’t get caught, you might be forced to walk the plank. In the midst of it all, for the braver soul, a haunted shipwreck, The Nameless, lies in the darkness undisturbed… waiting, its crew rumoured to wander the wreckage. We won’t be there to guide you through the dark and treacherous trail, so bring a torch! It’s no time to be afraid of your own shadow.

There’s something for the whole family at Wicked Wharf this Halloween…what will you find? Get your costume ready (there are plenty of prizes to be won) and we’ll see you there…if you dare!
