‘Te Papa Tongarewa’ literally means ‘container of treasures’. Discover the treasures and stories of New Zealand’s land and people under one roof.

Enjoy six floors of engaging, interactive displays. Encounter Māori and Pacific cultural treasures, New Zealand’s extraordinary natural life, its most important works of art, and its unique history. Get shaken up in the Earthquake House or come face to face with a colossal squid, then explore its life through 3D animation.
