Family Activities

Looking for something fun to do with the kids over the weekend? Bring them into the Maritime Museum to take an interactive journey through our galleries.

The Museum has gallery trails to enliven your family experience through the Museum. Grab your activity booklet as you enter the Museum and collect character stickers upon completion of the trail. 

There are two trail booklets to choose from! Visitors can either design their own boat in our Blue Water Black Magic gallery looking at New Zealand’s modern sailing heroes, or they can decide on their own journey story where they can use the activity booklet to create the experience of travelling to a new place in our Immigration gallery in the form of a suitcase lightbox. 

Family Trails are $3 per person
