Te Papa's scholarly publishing has its origins in the nineteenth century. Since the 1860s, Te Papa’s predecessor institutions, the Colonial Museum, the Dominion Museum and subsequently the National Museum of New Zealand, published papers on a range of topics, particularly in the natural sciences and ethnology, while the National Art Gallery published regularly on its collections and exhibitions.
Tuhinga: Records of the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa is the successor to the Museum of New Zealand Records, the National Museum of New Zealand Records, and the Dominion Museum Records in Ethnology.
It is peer reviewed, published annually, and collects together papers by Te Papa's curators, collection managers, and research associates on a range of topics, from archaeology to zoology.
Tuhinga is published by Te Papa Press. The most recent Tuhinga publications are listed below and are available for free download.
