No GPS. No Forecasts. No Communications. Just setting sail into unknown oceans, to put New Zealand on the map in 1642.

Welcome Aboard is the story of a Dutch farm boy who became a big name in history. Now, 375 years later, we look back on the adventures of Tasman and his crew. Setting off with two small ships with just the stars to guide them into uncharted seas: explore good old sailor’s bravery in this fascinating exhibition.

Come and find out about this incredible journey. Opening 28 April 2018, 12.00 pm in the presence of the Dutch Ambassador, his Excellency Rob Zaagman. Welcome Aboard!
