Museum Hunts

We offer a range of Museum Hunts suitable for 4- 12-year-olds, with changing themes and challenges every school holiday.  A Hunt is a great way to explore the Museum together!

Available from the Welcome Desk at any time.

Price: $6.00 including a fun reward.

New Museum Hunts, coming soon!

The Antarctic season is about to begin, keep an eye out for updates on exciting new hunts!

All things rotary!

There’s helicopters and crew members everywhere around the museum – if you know where to look.

These brand new hunts will see tamariki searching the museum for everything helicopter themed. There’ll be lots to discover and learn along the way too, and a prize at the end!

Chopper spotter text

Chopper Spotter: Recommended age 3-6

Helicopters have taken over the Museum for the July School Holidays! Help us count how many are hiding in the corners. Remember to look up and down and all around! When you’ve finished, return to base for a well-deserved reward.

Helicopter Crew Recruiting: Recommended age 5-9

It takes more than a pilot to keep a helicopter in the air! Search the Museum to recruit a crew with the skills to get your helicopter into the air. Learn some cool helicopter language along the way and, when finished, return to base for a reward.

The Amazing World of Helicopters: Recommended age 8+

Helicopters are amazing machines used every day to support a huge variety of tasks. Take a journey around the world and spot many of the classic examples we see so often on the big and small screen. Take in a bit of helicopter history as you complete your task. Job done? Make your way back to base to collect your reward.

Open daily from 9.30am to 4.30pm (except Christmas Day)
Entry to the Museum is free, donations are appreciated.
