Do you remember your first visit to Puke Ariki?

What's your favourite all time exhibition?

Do you have photos from the Taranaki Museum?

We would love to hear from you!

On 28 August 1919 the Taranaki Museum opened its doors for the very first time, and now a century later we will be marking this milestone during the last week of August in all sorts of exciting ways (details coming very soon) and we want YOU to be part of it!

Our community is an integral part of the Museum’s history and success and we would love to hear your fondest memories from any time in the past century - so send us your stories, old photographs or videos.

We’d like to hear from anyone who has a connection, whether from coming here as a child, delving into our collections as a researcher or just because you’re a long-time fan with a favourite memory to share.

We're collecting your Museum Memories throughout July and our favourites will be included in a digital display as part of the August celebrations at Puke Ariki.
