Discovery is our natural history centre for children and inquiring minds of all ages.
Discovery is bursting with weird and wonderful things to explore. Dig for fossils, watch the live tarantulas, gaze at the wall of preserved specimens, look through the drawers of pinned insects and learn all about our amazing world and the creatures that share it.
Entry to Discovery is usually $2.00 per person (under three years free), but is free while New Zealand is at COVID-19 Alert Level 2. Discovery closes 30 minutes before Museum closes.
