We’re here to help you make your group visit as smooth as possible, so that you and your guests have the best Te Manawa experience!
It is important to keep to booking times and venues as early or late arrival will affect the quality of your visit and impact other booked groups.
Arrive in plenty of time for your programme and report to the reception desk in the Museum building. If you are booked for a programme, an educator will greet you in the foyer and guide you to the appropriate Education Room or gallery. For self lead groups a Visitor Host at reception is available to answer your questions.
There are three education rooms; two downstairs in the Museum building, and one upstairs in the Art Gallery. These rooms are used for education programmes in addition to using gallery and exhibition areas.
Trolleys to store students’ bags are available in the foyer of the Museum and Art Gallery for visiting groups. Ask a Visitor Host for access to these when you arrive. Do not leave valuables such as cameras, wallets in these trolleys or unattended in education rooms.
