Te Taiao Nature is a bold and immersive journey through the natural world of Aotearoa New Zealand, combining cutting-edge science with mātauranga Māori.

The museum’s incredible natural history collections are showcased throughout, including a moa egg dating at least 700 years, one of only 36 known mostly intact moa eggs in the world. There’s dozens of exciting interactive experiences, from creating your own tsunami to weighing in against a giant moa, and the return of two old favourites from Te Papa’s previous nature exhibition: the colossal squid and a revamped Earthquake House.

Te Taiao nature is a permanent new addition to the museum and entry is free.
