• Waitangi Museum Med Res-39

What's happening at Waitangi.

Waitangi Treaty Grounds has a year-round calendar of cultural performances, public events and displays of the nation’s most important historical treasures.

We regularly welcome new exhibitions to the museum’s temporary gallery so there is always something new to see, even for frequent visitors.

See here for our current September-November Events Programme.

Current Exhibition

Tatau Pounamu: unpacking the tākoha of Waitangi

Extended to 2021

This exhibition is based on Waitangi’s long, and often unseen, collecting history. Curated by one of our very own passionate staff members Ella Weehuizen, it is inspired by Lord Bledisloe’s speech at the first Waitangi celebration here at the Treaty Grounds. Come and Visit.
