Heroines of the Sea - October Holiday Programme

Monday 1 October - Friday 12 October

Head off with the tamariki to the Maritime Museum in the school holidays to hear stories from the Museum’s collection and the unsung ‘wonder wāhine’ of Aotearoa’s maritime past and present. Characters in the galleries, take home craft activities and harbour sailings will keep everyone entertained.
Activities most suit ages 3-9.
