Museum of Waitangi

The Museum of Waitangi Te Kōngahu opened on 7 February 2016. The two storey museum houses a permanent exhibition Ko Waitangi Tēnei on the ground floor and changing exhibitions, along with an education centre on the first floor.

The museum enhances the Waitangi Treaty Grounds experience by introducing the story of the area and its people through high quality exhibition and learning spaces, making use of mulit-media and visual displays. Significant taonga (treasures) associated with Waitangi were scattered throughout New Zealand and have now made the journey home to take their place in the Museum of Waitangi Te Kōngahu.

Entry to the Museum of Waitangi is included in the Day Pass.
