CITY SIGHTS AND TE PAPA TAONGA MĀORI TOUR – HALF DAY
Come and see Wellington and the treasures at Te Papa like no one else can. The tour starts with some of Wellington’s most iconic streets like Cuba St & Lambton Quay before stopping at Parliament grounds. Afterwards you will be taken to Mt Victoria for stunning 360º views of Wellington City & Harbour. We then travel down to Te Papa National Museum.
At Te Papa we start the Taonga Māori Tour, which takes you straight to the heart of New Zealand’s national museum. This hosted cultural tour will weave you through the Māori exhibition spaces at Te Papa to experience our unique history through stories and objects. It will then take you behind the scenes to experience Māori taonga (treasures) close up and provide you with an opportunity to engage with collections staff. This is an exclusive view of the main Maori Treasures collection at Te Papa and is not open to the public. The visit to Te Papa ends with some light refreshments and a short time to reflect with your hosts and then returning to your city accommodation.
