Our priorities for the next five years centre on enriching the visitor experience, extending our reach and impact, fostering new research questions and debate, and supporting social belonging and participation. This Strategic Plan sets out our direction for the next five years.
As New Zealand’s oldest research institution, Auckland Museum has always put research at the heart of its activities and aspirations. The Museum’s ‘Stretch Thinking’ strategy will see our research becoming more visible and meaningful, creating change and leaving a legacy for future generations.
He Korahi Māori is a cultural philosophy based on the spirit of partnership and goodwill envisaged by the Treaty of Waitangi that leads our vision to be a bicultural Museum.
The Pacific Dimension at the Auckland Museum is outlined in the framework Teu le Vā.
He Ara Whaowhia outlines an approach and contains a work plan that has been developed according to the Act to ensure the Taumata fulfils its statutory role, upholds a constructive and effective partnership with the Trust Board and moves to a more proactive and strategic engagement model.
Our three-year Sustainability Action Plan focuses our attention on the areas we can influence and have the most significant positive impact. The plan sets the foundation for our long-term net-zero target by 2050 and reinforces our organisation-wide commitment to reduce our impact on the environment and inspire others to do the same.
Future Museum is a high-level strategic and capital investment plan that will guide a process of transformational change at Tāmaki Paenga Hira Auckland War Memorial Museum.
