Join us at Auckland Museum to celebrate Matariki - the Light Within, a family-friendly evening of light-hearted entertainment and fun.
Activities are available for adults and children alike- kiri tuhi or face-painting, and make your own porotiti- designed to bring out the “inner light” in fun and simple ways.
Choose to follow the lit pathway into our Maori court where our Learning Team will share stories of Matariki, and discover hidden areas in our Maori and Pacific Galleries with story, music, traditional games and taonga handling.
We invite you to bring a family picnic basket, and enjoy Maori entertainment at its finest. Let's celebrate Matariki together!
Please note: there will be no food or drink available for purchase and is an alcohol-free, drug-free event.
