Celebrating our 22nd Birthday

The Maritime Museum, just prior to opening in 1993 - NZ Maritime Museum Archives

 

This week marks the museum’s 22nd birthday here on Hobson Wharf, after the Right Hon. Jim Bolger Prime Minister of New Zealand cut a ceremonial ribbon on 19 August, 1993. We then opened our doors to the first members of the public two days later, on Saturday 21 August 1993.
