See Secrets of Stonehenge - for FREE!

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.

Share the experience by adding a Friends & Whānau pass when you sign up, so you can always bring someone along to the exhibition with you.
