Thank you for your interest in donating to the collection.

Puke Ariki Museum has decided to place temporary moratorium on new acquisitions: Beginning June 1, 2021 and lasting for one year. The museum is pausing all collecting activities in order to prioritise the care and cataloguing of existing objects.

If you have found anything that falls under the Protected Objects Act, we will continue to help you with this. Please contact us if you find any taonga tūturu so that we can help negotiate their return to iwi. If you have any questions about the Protected Objects Act, you can read more here.

We thank you for considering Puke Ariki as the permanent home for your objects and invite you to contact us with your potential donations once the moratorium is over.
