Museums Wellington is part of registered charity Experience Wellington (CC22571).

Wellington Museum, Space Place, Cable Car Museum and Nairn Street Cottage share the many stories of Te Whanganui-a-Tara. Without your support, the city’s stories go untold.

You can help keep local taonga accessible in a number of ways:


Your gift helps keep remarkable cultural experiences accessible to Wellington communities. Making a donation supports education programmes for tamariki, entry to Wellington Museum and Cable Car Museum free and makes new exhibitions and events possible.
