Celebrate Chinese New Year at Auckland Museum as we stay open until 9pm during the weekend of the Lantern Festival. We've got two days of activities for the whole family to enjoy, including games, music, facepainting, arts and crafts.

Discover the dynamic stories of Chinese life in New Zealand in Being Chinese in Aotearoa: A photographic journey, a brand new exhibition celebrating 175-years of Chinese New Zealanders.
