Museum of Te Papa

Te Papa stands proud as an iconic national building housing the treasures of the nation and is a vibrant destination for both national and international visitors. Biculturalism is a founding philosophy and practice of Te Papa designed to explore the contribution of Māori language and culture to the life, culture and activities of the museum in small and large ways. Te Papa fosters and nurtures cross-cultural capability, the ability of people of different cultural backgrounds to interact with one another in positive and uplifting ways.

The Project Management Ofiice at Te Papa is diverse in the projects we deliver – from exhibitions, to public programmes, to commercial activity, to our operational requirements, to maintaining our buildings that house our National taonga.
