What You Can Expect

Head to the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, located at the waterfront in Wellington, and gain free admission. This 1-hour tour takes place with a museum guide in the afternoon. You'll set off with a small group to explore popular exhibits with a docent who sheds light on the land of Aotearoa and its indigenous Māori people.

With collections spread over six floors of engaging, interactive displays, there are plenty of Māori and other Pacific Island cultural treasures to encounter along with New Zealand’s extraordinary natural history. Hear engaging and informative commentary on the most important works of art, and learn about the museum's unique bi-cultural partnership, which recognizes and celebrates Māori as tangata whenua — the original people of this land.

It's an ideal orientation for first-time visitors while adding depth and understanding to the Te Papa experience.
