Art Wall
Pātū Toi

Choose from over 600 art works from Te Papa’s collection to ‘hang’ on our wall.

Art Wall invites you to browse Te Papa’s art collection and choose an art work to ‘hang’ on the wall via a large projection in the museum.

Art at Te Papa belongs to you, after all.

Your art work choices will be projected onto the large hoardings surrounding the exciting new art gallery construction on level four.

You can access Art Wall via a website using your own device, or on an installed touch screen kiosk located near Espresso.
