Welcome to "Our Place," the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. The national museum of New Zealand features collections in Art, History, Pacific, Māori, and Natural Environment, making it an excellent place to learn about the culture of the Tangata Whenua and Tangata Tiriti. Most of the exhibits are interactive, so you get a hands-on experience that is innovative, fun and unforgettable. You can also find the world's largest invertebrate in the Colossal Squid Exhibition.

Visit Te Papa when you go on a self-drive holiday in Wellington. There are 2 holiday parks close to the museum and you can easily find great motorhomes for hire when you enter your travel details into the Quote Calculator.
