This exhibition is made for kids and their whānau to explore the bizarre beasts in Te Papa’s art collection (and a few visiting creatures too).

So come to discover why artists make these marvellous monsters. But beware – wicked goblins lurk within!

Curated by Dr Chelsea Nichols, Curator Modern Art, and Miri Young, Head of Learning Innovation, with special help from Year 3-6 kids at Kilbirnie School, Curious Creatures & Marvellous Monsters encourages kids to look at art with all of their senses.
