One Word Photo Challenge: Museum

The Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa is New Zealand’s national museum, located in Wellington. Known as Te Papa, or ‘Our Place’, it opened in 1998 after the merging of the National Museum and the National Art Gallery.

  1. I’d heard that the Te Papa Museum was one of the top attractions in Wellington. I’d like to see it. I had one day in Wellington just a few hours really, on our cruise two years ago and I knew if I went in there I’d spend half a day so instead I elected to do the Cable Car, have a look at the CBD and as it was a marvellous sunny Sunday stroll along the waterfront where everyone was out going to the market, the circus, playing street pianos and generally enjoying the day. Wellington and Napier were my two favourite places in New Zealand but I hope to go back one day and then I will see the museum.
