If you cannot visit the Museum in person, staff in the Library and Pau Maumahara Memorial Discovery Centre offer a research service.
Many of your questions may be answered by a search of the internet or a visit to your local library. But if you have an enquiry based on the Museum's Collections or our special knowledge please do contact us.
Simple, quick requests are usually answered free-of-charge. Enquiries needing research may attract a charge, but staff will inform you if that is the case.
