Explore where, when, why, and perhaps most intriguingly, how Stonehenge was built. Now after 20 years of excavations at Stonehenge and at the source of its bluestones in Wales, archaeologists finally have some answers.
Secrets of Stonehenge highlights more than 300 ancient artefacts and the latest cutting-edge scientific research to answer questions about this iconic, mysterious World Heritage Site.
This is a paid exhibition but is free for Museum Members.
What’s more awesome than a real T. rex? Two of them!
For the past year, ‘Peter’, one of the world’s rarest, most complete Tyrannosaurus rex skeletons, has captured the imagination of visitors to the Museum. Now Peter is being joined by Barbara, an even larger female T. rex with an incredible survival story of her own to tell.
Get ready for double trouble in a world's first of prehistoric proportions. Witness history in the making as Peter and Barbara make their duo debut in Te Ao Mārama South Atrium - the only place you can see an adult male and female T. rex on display together.
This exhibit is free for all Aucklanders, and is included in international visitors' admission charge. Donations are invited from other New Zealand visitors.
Take a road trip of discovery with one of Aoteoroa’s best-loved photographers. Robin Morrison’s iconic images of people and places in the South Island are honest, heartwarming and quintessentially Kiwi. Don’t miss this free exhibition that captures a unique spirit of time and place.
