How can we counter climate change?
You’ll be the explorer in the new Taiao | Nature zone. Old favourites like the colossal squid and the quake house will be back, along with new exhibits showcasing New Zealanders' unique connection to nature – and our future as kaitiakikaitiaki guardians .
Mountains to Sea, Awesome Forces, and NatureSpace are closed while construction happens on Taiao | Nature.
These spaces had been with us since the beginning – 20 years. It's time to create bold new exhibitions to reflect our changing world.
The new zone opens in 2019. In the meantime, our living nature exhibit Bush City remains open – access via Te Papa Cafe, Level 1.
