Te kaupapa

Ko te kitenga roa o Te Papa tēnei, arā, kia hangahoutia ngā ngākau, ngā whakaaro me te oranga o te tangata.

Ko tā mātou, he tū hei pou wānanga e whakaatuhia ai, e tūhuratia ai, e tiakina ai ngā tikanga tuku iho a te motu me ngā mātauranga o te taiao. I whakatūria a Te Papa i runga i te tūāpapa o te Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa Act 1992.
