The Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa is New Zealand's national museum, located in Wellington. Known as Te Papa, or 'Our Place', it opened in 1998 after the merging of the National Museum and the National Art Gallery. A fuller interpretation is ‘our container of treasured things and people that spring from mother earth here in New Zealand’. Te Papa's philosophy emphasises the living face behind its cultural treasures, many of which retain deep ancestral links to the indigenous Māori people. The Museum recognises the partnership that was created by the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi, te Tiriti o Waitangi, in 1840.
The National Museum of New Zealand is the largest museum in the Southern Hemisphere, with a rich collection of Maori culture, and the War Pavilion is impressed by its authenticity. And its most prestigious is its interactivity, known as the most interactive museum in the world. There are a lot of interesting projects waiting for visitors to participate. Through interaction, let children know more about nature and understand the world! Bring children here on New Year's Day holiday, there is an unknown magical world waiting for them to open!
Wellington is not as famous as tourists in Queenstown and Oakland, but as the capital of New Zealand, it also has its own unique charm, such as this museum that cannot be missed.
New Zealand's Te Papa National Museum is the largest museum in the Southern Hemisphere. Located in the heart of Queens Bay, Wellington, in the heart of the city, is the only government-managed museum in New Zealand. The museum is open to the public free of charge, and only special exhibitions and guided tours are available for a fee. And once a day in Chinese, it is recommended to listen to it, to better understand the history of New Zealand and the culture of local Maori. The wax figure in the war hall of the
first floor lobby is very realistic and shocking, and people have to feel the cruelty of war and pray for peace.
In addition, the entire museum also has a parent-child interaction area, and also designed a lot of links for children to participate, very entertaining.
