Step back in time at Te Papa Museum (Te Papa Tongarewa)

Te Papa is New Zealand’s historic hub, but this national museum has an interesting history of its own. From its humble beginnings as the tiny Colonial Museum in 1865, Te Papa has changed name and location multiple times over the years on its journey to becoming the go-to location for cultural and historical education in New Zealand.

Today, the museum welcomes millions of visitors through its doors every year.

With free general admission and informative, interactive displays throughout, there’s always something new to discover at Te Papa. Learn more about early New Zealand Maori art, history, and culture, and the events that shaped New Zealand as we know it today, or wander through one of the specialised exhibits, including Peter Jackson’s world-renowned ‘Gallipoli: The Scale Of Our War’.

Stay at the James Cook Hotel Grand Chancellor and explore Te Papa at your own pace. We’re within easy walking distance along the waterfront. So book your room online and discover what makes this great country what it is today.
