Join us and become a Sponsor

As the New Zealand Maritime Museum celebrates its 25th Birthday, we invite you to partner with us as we head into an exciting and important time in the Museum’s development.

The New Zealand Maritime Museum, an integral part of Aotearoa New Zealand’s cultural fabric, unites people with the sea and our maritime heritage. Through our exhibition galleries, education and learning programmes, sailings on heritage boats, library and archives, the Museum enables people to understand and celebrate the role our maritime heritage plays in defining what it means to be a New Zealander.

Recognising that all of our partnerships are unique, we will carefully consider your values and commercial objectives while working with you to develop a strategic package of bespoke benefits and leverage opportunities that provide you with a highly impactful and meaningful return on your investment.

We’d love to meet with you to discuss how we can create a rich and rewarding partnership – contact Caroline Nelson, Head of Advancement: or 021 244 1299.
