Ngaa Taonga: Treasures from Waikato Museum Te Whare Taonga o Waikato

1 September - 29 October 2017

Free entry

Thirty years ago, collections from the Waikato Historical Society and the Waikato Society of the Arts combined to form the beginnings of the collection of Te Whare Taonga o Waikato. Today the Museum houses over 30,000 artefacts including taonga Maaori, art, social history and science. The collection is a reflection of the cultural heritage of Waikato-Tainui and colonial history, as well as art from the region. This exhibition celebrates some of the treasures from the Museum’s collection.

Education programmes are available for this exhibition.
