Hi! My name is Big Foot. Come and join me to discover what choices we can make to get more eco-friendly at home - with things like throwing out rubbish and using electricity.

Te Papa’s natural environment Discovery Centre will take you on an incredible journey through the natural world. At NatureSpace you step inside a dinosaur footprint, crawl in to a whale heart, inspect an insect under a microscope, find a fossil, and much more. NatureSpace rocks!

Wonderbox is NatureSpace's exciting school outreach programme. Three schools in the South Island got the change to design a mini exhibition using their own collection of taonga from the natural world. Come into NatureSpace and have a look!

We have three more Discovery Centres for you to check out
