About us

NZMuseums showcases the New Zealand's museums and galleries and their collections. It's also a directory of museums and galleries, and an online collection management system. NZMuseums is the initiative of National Services Te Paerangi, a team at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, in Wellington, New Zealand.

The role of National Services Te Paerangi is to strengthen the museum sector by providing practical and strategic help to museums and iwi throughout Aotearoa New Zealand. Our objectives are to demonstrate and encourage leadership, encourage and support best practice, increase responsiveness, encourage and facilitate collaboration, and increase visibility and understanding of our purpose.

We recognise that museums must keep up with the times, and alongside the National Digital Content Strategy for New Zealand we are enabling the museums of New Zealand, in particular the several hundred small volunteer-run museums throughout the country, to have a global presence through the Web.

National Services Te Paerangi has partnered with the solution provider Vernon Systems Ltd to provide this new experience for museums and their publics. Vernon Systems Ltd have created eHive - an online collections management system using international museum standards and the latest technologies. eHive allows museums to catalogue their collections online, join and contribute to communities including NZMuseums, and showcase their collections to the public.
