Wellington City Council and Te Papa have shared a long-term relationship since Wellington City Council became Te Papa’s Founding Partner in 1996.

The economic benefits that Te Papa brings to Wellington as a key destination for both international and domestic visitors are at the core of the partnership. Te Papa also works with other Wellington city attractions to increase visitation. And it provides direct benefits to Wellington residents including youth education opportunities and experiences to share with family and friends.

The Wellington Foyer is at the heart of Te Papa and is the central point for visitors to obtain information about their visit. The Wellington Foyer is used frequently to hold public events and visitor entertainment and can be hired after hours for private functions.

Wellington City Council’s investment in Te Papa helps to enhance and refresh the visitor experience and to deliver a range of short-term exhibitions which attract both new and repeat visitors.
