About the project

From 2016 to 2019 Auckland Museum opened up access to its Pacific treasures collection and created stronger connections with Auckland’s Pacific communities.

From musical instruments to weapons, textiles to carvings, tools to ornaments – the project enabled the Pacific collection to be better known, cared for and accessible onsite, offsite and online.

The project was part of the Future Museum ambition to open up access to collections.
