    I am on mildly curious side as to what you have in store especially the Pacific Island side. I have seen the Maori side which our class got a tour of last week. I am also interested in the Egyptian and Aztec collection.

    Best day for me is the 12th, you can contact me on 0274 333 818.
    I enjoy your interactive exhibitions and the blogs are great sources of information around the museum’s collections and people.
    As a child I lived near the old Dominion Museum and was a regular weekend visitor there, special to me were the Egyptology display (the mummy!..I was 9 or 10) the old whare, and the early settler room settings, where I loved to hover, musing over how it would have been to grow up in those days.
