In very exciting news, on Wednesday 24 March the Auckland Museum opened their new permanent suite of galleries Tāmaki Herenga Waka: Stories of Auckland to the public.
Tāmaki Herenga Waka: Stories of Auckland shares the diverse stories of the people and place that is Tāmaki Makaurau.
This is the first time that Auckland will have a permanent suite of galleries that explores the past, present and future of its people, and the cultures that have made the city what it is today. The stories of Auckland are shared through the Museum’s collections, with over 500 objects on display and rich digital experiences.
A key feature of the gallery is Kei konei koe You are Here, an audio-visual experience that offers up an immersive introduction to Tāmaki.
Visitors are invited on a journey through time and space, encountering Auckland from different and surprising perspectives through seven sections across four gallery spaces.
