EDUCATION PROGRAMMES

 Tēnā rā koutou katoa. We warmly welcome you to visit Whanganui Regional Museum with your class or group and take part in one of our hands-on interactive education programmes. Our experienced educators use Museum exhibitions, collections and the local environment to support learning across a variety of curriculum areas. Content is tailored to your class level and preferred learning outcomes. Our programmes can be delivered in either Māori or English, and incorporate bicultural perspectives where relevant.

Arā te kōrero ā kui mā, ā koro mā:
Ko te manu e kai ana i te miro, nōna te ngāhere
 Ko te manu e kai ana i te mātauranga, nōna te ao.”
 
Nā reira, haria mai āu manu kai mātauranga.
 
Education newsletters are published each term and feature education programmes linked to special events and to new exhibitions.

FEATURED PHOTO

On 26 May 1904, following four days of continuous heavy rain, the Whanganui River rose to flood level. At the height of the flood over four feet of water spilled into on Taupō Quay and most of the businesses in the area were abandoned. This photograph shows the river peaking just below the Town Bridge.
