Almost there and I was rapt to get the finalised event programme for this weekend’s opening. Our events team have done an amazing job – balancing hard science with fun, informative events for all.
Dr Steve O’Shea is back in the house talking about the importance of our specimen to the science world with TV3′s fishing guru, Graeme Sinclair.
Te Papa’s own Chris Paulin will be showing how we got from an ice cube to an exhibit!
Also, squid dissections (arrow squid, mind you!), storytelling and craft activities for the young and old.
And the best thing is that all the events are FREE.
