Te Papa Museum & Cable Car


See what makes New Zealand unique on an in-depth guided tour of Te Papa. Discover this vibrant land and diverse natural environment from the kiwi bird to the kauri tree and Te Papa’s colossal squid. Explore the powerful geological forces that shape the dramatic landscape and come face to face with Ruaumoko, the god of earthquakes and volcanoes. Discover the world of Maori and hear stories told though a powerful mix of cultural treasures, oral histories, and contemporary works. Step inside the Te Hau ki Turanga, one of the oldest and most significant meeting houses and visit the dynamic and beautiful marae (communal meeting place), designed and created by leading Maori carvers. See highlights from the national art collection. Ride the 111-year-old Wellington Cable Car, the funicular which climbs 119 metres in the air and travels a length of 610 metres. Three minutes later you will be enjoying Wellington’s breathtaking views. Time permitting, pop into the Cable Car Museum, housed within the original Winding House. Special Notes: Please wear comfortable flat-soled shoes, clothing suited to the weather conditions, a hat and jacket, plenty of biodegradable sunscreen and bring bottled water.
