Details and Contact

Ngā Taenga mai -Arrivals focuses on a 30 year period of Banks Peninsula history when the region underwent intense change. From the 1830s to the 1850s, a 700-800 year continuum of Ngāi Tahu occupation was broken by new arrivals. The simultaneous histories of whaling, the failed French colony, naval occupation, the arrival of Pākeha settlers and the struggle by Ngāi Tahu to get a fair deal for their land are explored in the new exhibition.
