Journey through our special exhibition Voyage to Aotearoa: Tupaia and the Endeavour at Auckland Museum.
You and your family can experience life as it was 250 years ago in our action-packed 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 family-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.
On now and free for Aucklanders.
Hurry, exhibition only on for a limited time.
