Puke Ariki's journey of change continues as we forge on with our plans to refresh our long-term exhibition galleries. There is to be a 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! Watch out for the new displays appearing early next year. The Takapou Whāriki gallery has been updated and the amazing Motunui Epa are now on permanent display. 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.
There are new developments with regards to the Kōkako: Te Kōrero o Tamanui/The Story of Tamanui project too with a beautiful children's book being launched and a new interactive display in Discover it! So come and check us out!
