A thousand years ago the great Polynesian voyager Kupe made an epic journey across the Pacific Ocean to a new land. Many traces remain of Kupe’s encounter with this place. They can be found in the names of landmarks in various parts of the country, and even in one of its names – Aotearoa.

In this exhibition you can explore some of these Kupe sites – in Northland, the Wairarapa, Wellington, and Marlborough.
