These activity trails will help you to explore Te Papa. Each trail contains a range of fun activities so you can get the most out of your museum visit. Each trail should be printed on A3 paper, then folded to create a booklet. Students can work on these individually or in pairs.
The trails are perfect for self-guided visits. If you would like more support with your visit please book a guided education programme.
Move your mouse over the trails below to find out more.
