Ahoy ye families!

Grab a torch and join our adventurers and suffer a sailor’s life on-board, as we navigate the southern oceans with Cook and company.

It’s going to be all hands on deck as you learn how to behave in His Majesty’s Royal Navy – avoid the dreaded cat o’ nine tails and sample some delightful 18th century naval food. Mmmm, pease porridge, anyone?

Discover stories and traditions of tangata whenua as encountered by that first bewildered bunch of seafarers. And how do you communicate if you don’t speak the same language? Try to dodge muddles and mix-ups once we reach the Pacific.

Have you got what it takes? Well, let’s batten down the hatches and join in the fun in this overboard quest.

Night at the Museum includes access to our new exhibition Voyage to Aotearoa: Tupaia and the Endeavour.

This event tends to sell out! Book your tickets now to avoid missing out.
