Research at Auckland Museum
As New Zealand’s oldest research institution, Auckland Museum has always put research at the heart of its activities and aspirations. Central to our research is our 4.5 million object heritage asset and our diverse and specialised expertise. This globally unique resource enables a research approach that is interdisciplinary, collaborative and connected.
Our research themes align to current societal and environmental issues, and to the strategic direction of Auckland Museum. We aspire to set an international benchmark for indigenous research in museums and best-practice approaches to culturally competent research. Mātauranga Māori, along with iwi partnership and community engagement, is integral to our research.
Our research will be visible and meaningful, creating change and leaving a legacy for future generations.
