Can you tell reality from rumour? Find out as we reveal secrets and stories of the Museum, Tāmaki Makaurau and beyond. You’ll need to follow the clues and discover which stories are facts and which are fake in this free trail.
This self-guided tour will take you all over the Museum; top to bottom, inside and out as you fact-check stories from The Tāmaki Truth newspaper. Once you’ve found a source, you’ll need to decide whether it’s trustworthy or trickery.
Simply pick up a copy of The Tāmaki Truth from the Museum entrance and start your journey. Branded pencils will be available for a gold coin donation.
Those who sort the gospel from the gossip will go into the draw to win an awesome prize pack from our shop. The winner will be drawn Monday 10 January 2022.
If you'd like to get a head-start and print The Tāmaki Truth at home, you can download it here. Please note that it is double-sided and A3 size.
