People have always created meanings by making constellations out of the millions of stars in the night sky. Here we present objects from the collections in our own themed constellations.

Just like stars, these objects come from different times and places. They might appear like they have nothing in common, but are strongly connected through a single theme. Together, these objects make up the texture of Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland city.
