Te Koputu Gallery Alive Experience
Learn about Maori culture at Te Koputu Gallery Alive Experience, where traditional museum exhibits are brought to life through storytelling.
Whakatane's Te Koputu Gallery Alive Experience is more than a typical museum - it is a fully immersive experience, introducing visitors to the legends that have shaped Maori culture over centuries. These stories are shared through vivid, contemporary exhibitions where the actual decedents of the legendary maori chiefs recount their history.
The exhibits will take you on a remarkable tour through the region`s fascinating history - starting with tales of Toi, an early explorer of the area, to the arrival of Mataatua (a settler's canoe from Polynesia), to European settlement and into modern day.
The Te Koputu Gallery Alive Experience endeavours to bring history to life in a way that will captivate everyone. You will be hard-pressed to find a museum offering the same level of information presented with such care - a sign that the curators see this as more than just a job, but as a project of passion.
Adults: $25 , Children (under 15): $10, Family Concession: Up to 2 children free with every 2 full paying adults.
Monday to Friday: from 10.00am
