Here at Wellington Museum, we think it is super important to keep young minds active and their creativity flowing. Being at home can be a super fun opportunity to learn in new and exciting ways! We are creating activities that encourage tamariki to think deeper about special taonga in their kāinga! Keep your eyes peeled for our fun activities, which will be released weekly.

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

Our second activity is available for download here.

Download our third activity here.

Find our fourth activity here.

Download our fifth activity here.

Our sixth and finaly activity in our community/hapori series is available for download here.

We would love to see the fantastic work of your tamariki, so send us a picture or two to us at museumeducation@experiencewellington.org.nz

In April the National Council of Women of New Zealand (NCWNZ) celebrated their 124th birthday. We at Wellington Museum were going to celebrate this momentous occasion with NCWNZ Wellington Branch. Sadly, lockdown meant that this couldn’t happen in person, so we’ve had to get creative to mark the occasion. Introducing Herstorical Moments. A series of five short films where 25 women from diverse communities in Wellington tell us what women’s suffrage means to them in today’s world. Watch them here.
