From Kupe and the first Polynesians to arrive in New Zealand, to the discovery and settlement of New Zealand by Europeans, right through to our present day yachting success and the inspirational story of Sir Peter Blake, visit the Museum to discover the stories that have shaped our identity as a seafaring nation.
Along the way you can try your hand at yacht design, relax in a kiwi style bach, hoist the sails, hear the cannon fire, and batten down the hatches in the rocking cabin.
There’s plenty of opportunity to get out on the water too. The Museum’s fully-restored heritage scow Ted Ashby sets sail six days a week taking visitors on a one hour voyage of the harbour with great views of Auckland's skyline and the Harbour Bridge.
