Can you keep Auckland Museum open?

We need your help! Some Museum employees have mysteriously disappeared – without them the Museum can’t properly safeguard its collections and may have to close to the public.

In this session, students take up the challenge of successfully saving the Museum.

Working in teams, students will have to complete five scenarios which take them all over the Museum, play the different roles of Museum staff, and learn the skills of various specialists and why they are important to the Museum.

Who will be the first to complete the tasks and keep the Museum’s collections safe?
