Various Artists

    Memories, connections, childhood dreams. This exhibition Taonga Talking has an eclectic and intriguing selection of objects from the Museum’s collection on display, each one individually picked by our kaimahi [staff members].

    From a 1980s boom box to an 1890s stereoscope, each taonga has been selected from the Museum’s vast collection due to its power to spark a special memory.

    Some honour relatives and people that have inspired them, others think of home and childhood dreams. Some remember places of significance, or reflect on the past to encourage a better future.

    Enjoy visiting Taonga Talking and getting to know us and the Museum's collection better.
