Puke Ariki is embarking on a journey of change as we refresh our long-term exhibition galleries and the latest update can be found in the Taranaki Life
gallery! Big Time: Taranaki's Oil and Gas Industry
tells the story of oil and gas extraction in the region while providing a platform for debate. The display of some of the artworks created by Māori contemporary artists from around the country who answered the Call of Taranaki
in 2013 has also been changed in Takapou Whāriki.
Also check out Kōkako: Te Kōrero o Tamanui/The Story of Tamanui
in Taranaki Naturally
and discover the story of the last pure-bred Taranaki kōkako and the quest to bring this beautiful and rare native bird back to the region.
