"Te Papa Museum" Te Papa National Museum Tip by Dodo22

Te Papa National Museum, Wellington: 30 reviews and 49 photos

  Te Papa
by Dodo22

Te Papa is the national museum of New Zealand and was opened on 14 February 1998.

After extensive consultation with iwi (Maori tribal groups), and canvassing of political support to secure funding, a new Act of Parliament was passed in 1992 (the Museum of New Zealand Act, Te Papa Tongarewa 1992), which combined the National Museum and the National Art Gallery to form the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. Te Papa was a rare and exciting challenge - the opportunity to design from scratch a place unique to New Zealand
