Say cheese! It's LIVE DAY: Photography this October, join us as we zoom into the world of photography!

Capture the day with photo ops around the museum, learn about scientific photography using a pinhole camera or check out a variety of cyanotype photograms. You can even make and take your own camera home with you!

Plus, check out the history of technology with our Get Smart exhibit, telling the story of communications, computing and smart technology over the last 200 years and how New Zealand connected with the world.

There will be loads more going on around the museum including the Live Day classics like the Lollyman, the Blacksmith's Forge, Little Flick, live music and heaps more!
