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.
