More about New Zealand Maritime Museum

The New Zealand Maritime Museum Hui Te Ananui a Tangaroa celebrates Aotearoa New Zealand’s bond with the sea and tells stories of discovery, exploration, immigration and sailing. We are a place of dreams, daring feats, amazing journeys, burning ambition, human endeavour, imagination and courage.

In recognition of the Tuia – Encounters 250 event, the New Zealand Maritime Museum (NZMM) is developing an exhibition that aims to manifest a ‘conversation’ by combining artefacts and taonga from (or referencing) life in Aotearoa New Zealand 250 years ago and beyond, with creative responses (artworks) from the present.

More about Tuia – Encounters 250

Later this year, New Zealand will mark 250 years since the first meetings between Māori and Europeans during James Cook, Tupaia and the Endeavour's 1769 voyage to Aotearoa New Zealand.

A national commemoration, Tuia – Encounters 250, will acknowledge this pivotal moment in our nation’s history as well as the exceptional feats of Pacific voyagers who reached and settled in Aotearoa many years earlier.
