Te Waka Huia o Ngā Taonga Tuku Iho | Wellington Museum

Wellington’s award-winning museum gives ākonga the chance to connect the past, present and future through stories, taonga and objects of Te Upoko o te Ika a Māui. Explore the environment, events, people, and places of the capital city. We offer learning experiences for ākonga of all ages, in reo Māori and English. 

Our programmes support connections to mana whenua stories, Te Ao Tangata | Social Sciences and a range of other curriculum areas. Ākonga grow their inquiry practices and explore big ideas about Māori history, colonisation, power, perspectives, participation, and relationships.
