Puke Ariki's journey of change continues as we forge on with our plans to refresh our long-term exhibition galleries. (Find out more about the driving force behind our plans here!)
Check out the whole new area dedicated to our Mounga along with other exciting new displays in the Taranaki Naturally gallery - you may have noticed Meg the shark is swimming in a different direction in readiness!
The Takapou Whāriki gallery has been updated and the amazing Motunui Epa are now on permanent display, and an updated interactive from the Bringing It Home exhibition has been installed in the Taranaki Life gallery to ensure that the stories of the Taranaki men and women who lived through those dark days of war are accessible to all.
Keep coming back to see what's new!
