Join Auckland Museum this Labour Weekend at the Viaduct Harbour for free family activities and interactive talks for the Tuia 250 commemoration.

Throughout the long weekend, kids can cut out their own edible/medicinal native flora from the selection of templates, puzzle them together, colour them in and add them to the Native Forest.

This is a chance to get creative and re-create native flora like manuka flowers and leaves, kumarahou (gum diggers soap), watercress, lacebark, kawakawa, piko piko.

On Saturday, Sunday and Monday at  11am and 2pm, guest speakers will offer talks.

An interactive live plant table (kindly supplied by Kaipara Coast Nursery) offers taste tests of these native edible in an area for relaxing and reading.
