Event Details

Viist the kid friendly VOYAGE TO AOTEAROA: TUPAIA AND THE ENDEAVOUR exhibition at Auckland Museum.

Jump on board this Pacific adventure where you can sail a va’a around the Society Islands, experience life as a sailor, and the charting of the coastline of Aotearoa.

You and your family can experience life as it was 250 years ago in our action-packed new exhibition. Immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the world of Tupaia, the Tahitian navigator, high priest and artist, as he journeys on the Endeavour to Aotearoa New Zealand.

With three parts to this exhibition, each with child-friendly interactive activities, we feature the little-known story of Tupaia and the significant role he played in James Cook’s first voyage. Experience life as a sailor, navigate your vessel across the ocean, watch Tupaia’s paintings come to life, and more.

Summer school holidays – Quest of the Navigators activity
During the summer school holidays collect a map from the information desk  and follow the clues to discover what skills, tools and knowledge were used in the pre-digital age, while the kids and you explore the Museum galleries.

The exhibition is on until Sunday 15 March 2020.
