Partner with Te Papa on our Gallipoli: The scale of our war exhibition

In everything we do, Te Papa aims to change hearts, change minds, and change lives. Our appeal reaches well beyond traditional museum audiences: more people visit Te Papa than any other museum or gallery in Australasia. In 2013/14 we welcomed 1,289,353 visitors through our doors and in 2014 we were voted the Trip Advisor Travellers’ Choice #1 Museum in the South Pacific for the second year in a row, and the #24 Museum in the world – alongside top museums in New York, Paris and London.

There are a number of ways your company can become involved and support Te Papa to deliver this major nationally significant exhibition. We have a flexible approach to creating strong and enduring partnerships with businesses and work successfully with a wide range of companies. We realise that each company has differing strategic objectives and want to work with you to create tailored packages that truly deliver a valuable return on investment. Corporate support is integral to the success of Te Papa’s delivery of its world-class exhibitions, education and community outreach programmes. This is especially true of Gallipoli: The Scale of our war, which will offer free entry to the public for five years. We feel this exhibition is so significant for all New Zealanders that we want to ensure accessibility for all.

In return for your generous support, your company will enjoy a range of benefits that include prominent brand visibility, hospitality opportunities, employee packages that offer exclusive access to our collections, special exhibitions and much more.

Recently, Campbell Live was invited to Weta Workshop to find out more about this exhibition which Sir Richard Taylor referred to as Weta’s most important work in its 27 years in business. You can view a short clip of the interview here (embed video: clip to be downloaded from this page: )
