About us

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

Through NZ Museums we are enabling all museums across New Zealand to have a global online presence, and encouraging cataloguing, digitatisation and sharing of collections.

If your museum would like show its profile on NZ Museums, or if you would like your log in information to update your profile or add your collections to NZ Museums, please contact us.
