About Te Papa  

Located on the waterfront in Wellington, Te Papa Museum is the national museum of New Zealand, and its name means “our place.” They get more than 1.5 million visitors every year. The philosophy of the museum is that the living faces behind the treasures are just as important as the treasures themselves. The museum is known for many unique reasons. 

For example, they have one of the first recognized dinosaur fossils in the world. The iguanodontid tooth was found in 1820 and is thought to be about 135 million years old. Another interesting fact is that Te Papa has over 200,000 fish specimens in jars. In fact, they have a special alcohol vapor detector to ensure the alcohol vapor levels do not get too high as they can be explosive. 

In another area of the museum, you can see a mummified moa head that is extremely rare. It was found in the late 19th century in a cave in Central Otago and is more than 600 years old. The staff at the museum have named more than 2,500 novel plant and animal species since 1865, including the Hector’s Dolphin. It was named after the founder of the museum in 1865. With over 20 exhibits and many of them permanent, you will surely find something you love at Te Papa. 

Fun Fact: Te Papa has the biggest lice collection in Australasia. This may be a strange thing to collect, but lice can tell scientists a lot about the animals they were found on.
