Taonga and Tūrangawaewae

02 Feb – 16 May 2021

To celebrate our 50th birthday we have been digging for gold in The Dowse Collection.

Discover some of the taonga that have been collected and treasured over the years in our exhibition Fool's Gold.

Together we will explore what makes a taonga. Is it the stories we share, our whanau or the places we belong?

Creative workshop is available.
