Visit to Te Papa Museum.
Te Papa has built in 1998. Te Pa Pa is a worldwide reputation for its fresh and bold approach to presenting a nation’s treasures and stories. Over ten million people have come to visit this unique museum experience. Te Papa is open everyday of the year from 10.00 am until 06.00 pm.
Te Papa is a museum about New Zealanders and Maori people. It is a waharoa, a gateway, to an encounter with the essence of New Zealand’s land and people. Wonderful taonga (Māori cultural treasures), art, and objects are presented through fascinating stories, thought-provoking interpretations, and engaging interactives.
Over the five floors of our huge building, you can explore the breadth of the New Zealand story – from the shaping of its land to the spirit of its diverse peoples, from its unique wildlife to its distinctive visual culture.
You will encounter Māori, New Zealand’s indigenous people, through authentic portrayals of their traditions and living culture as well as Te Papa’s unique Marae (communal meeting place), a setting that all visitors are encouraged to connect with.
