Waitangi Day: Experience the original Tiriti o Waitangi documents at the award-winning interactive He Tohu exhibition.

Booking is not required.
Join one of our 30 minute family friendly free guided experiences in Te Reo Māori or English to explore He Tohu, the multi-award winning exhibition which features all nine original signed sheets and interactive displays.

The guided experience offers insight into stories behind some of the 540 rangatira who signed te Tiriti o Waitangi and the thoughts of New Zealanders on the meaning and value of te Tiriti today.

Guided experiences will take place on the hour between 10am and 4pm (last tour at 4pm). After each guided experience there will be an opportunity to learn about the material life of the Treaty through an illustrated presentation with conservator Vicki-Anne Heikell (Nō Te Whānau-a-Apanui).

Vicki-Anne will talk about the composition and condition of the paper, parchment, inks and how this understanding helps conservators make decisions for the long term preservation of the documents.

A pre-ordered hāngī lunch will be served at HOME café at 12:45pm following the 12:00 midday guided experience. Please pre-order your hāngī ($15) by emailing events.natlib@dia.govt.nz (subject: Hāngī).

There will also be a Children’s art and reading area and Home café will open.

The He Tohu team will also be at Waitangi Park in Wellington City and the Waitangi Day Festival in Porirua. Look out for the He Tohu flag for information, prize packs and merchandise.
