Back to the 20th Century

Back to the 20th Century

Hi, and welcome to Te Papa’s 20th Century History blog.

Te Papa is currently working on a major new long-term exhibition focussed on New Zealand in the 20th century, scheduled to open in late 2009.

This blog will let you know how the exhibition development is going, share experiences we’ve had putting it together, and ask your opinion about stories and objects we’re including. From time to time we’ll also be asking for your help in contributing stories, pictures or objects to the exhibition.

Very soon we’ll be announcing our World War One Memorial project, in which we’ll be asking you to document your local war memorial for inclusion in the exhibition. Check this page again next week for full details of how you can contribute.

We’ll try to post something new here at least once a week, so check in regularly for the latest information.

If you’ve got any questions about the 20th Century History exhibition, or there are topics you’d like to see discussed in this blog, you can email us at
