Education

For kids and families

Whare Toi Bring the whole family to our fantastic studio space with interactive activities for children and adults alike. Draw a self-portrait, share your opinions on art, write your own art-work label, take a selfie, and more. Our latest Artist Project, by KerryAnn Lee, provides inspiration. Visit Ngā Toi | Arts Te Papa.

A free kid’s audio guide is available for kids to find out more about the artworks on display in Ngā Toi | Arts Te Papa. You can also ask a Host to borrow a free guide in the gallery.

Art Detective Kit Are you ready to join our team of supremo sleuths? Pick up an Art Detective Kit from the Level 5 Info Hub and use our 5 top-secret missions to explore the galleries. Remember to collect your ‘I’m a Super Sleuth’ badge when you’re done.
