Te Papa fun for little ones

1 day |

Te Papa has some fantastic features for littlies: not only are there the highly interactive exhibitions, Discovery Zones and Bush City to enjoy, but groups are welcomed at Story Place (charges apply) where they can hear a story and join in with songs and activities lead by a member of staff, then explore a themed space purpose-built for pre-schoolers.

Programmes in Story Place are linked to Te Whāriki, the Early Years Curriculum. Te Papa has lots of family-friendly facilities too.

Lovely Waitangi Park is nearby for picnics, play and stretching little legs. For other ideas on spots to stretch the legs, check out our list of Top 10 Playgrounds.
