Introducing ‘Kohi Pōneke -We Collect Wellington,’ an online series showcasing new taonga and objects collected by Wellington Museum.
We will be sharing with you treasures from our collection store and highlighting objects on display in Te Whanganui-a-Tara that celebrate the people and the events that have shaped the character and soul of Pōneke and the region.
Throughout NZ Music Month, we had local musicians performing in iconic Wellington spaces each Thursday night. Check out their performances here.
40 years on, we look back and talk to two Wellington residents who remember those turbulent times. Read more.
Sharing stories from the region we call home, Te Curio Cabinet is the official blog of Museums Wellington. From historical tidbits to think pieces and behind the scenes looks across our museums, like the best curio cabinets you never know what you are going to find.

Our first activity is all about exploring what taonga connects them to their kāinga! Download here.
