Museum celebrates Matariki 2017 in Sunshine Orange

Past Event
10 June - 2 July 2017 - Dusk to Dawn
Lighting up the Museum

To mark the start of the month-long 2017 Matariki Festival, and celebrate the Māori New Year, we are lighting sunshine orange until 2 July.

Auckland War Memorial Museum Tāmaki Paenga Hira

The particular colour is significant because at this time of year the Matariki constellation rises in the north east near the same point on the horizon as the sun.
