Video conferences 

Our video conferences are interactive, stimulating, and fun! We can provide your students with access to our collections and subject experts.  If you are new to video conferencing we are happy to guide you through the process. Contact us today to discuss your requirements.  Note that we require two weeks notice prior to booking. 

How to get a video conference to your class

There are several options for connecting with Te Papa for a video conference:

For either Skype or FaceMe you will need a computer with a webcam and microphone connected.
