A bach the size of a matchbox. A tattooed sailor. A fork with a startling backstory.
Captains, Collectors, Friends & Adventurers invites you to discover the Maritime Museum’s hidden treasures. Come face-to-face with some of Aotearoa’s legendary mariners, peer into miniature worlds and marvel at the unexpected links that can be made between people, places and events.
From albatrosses to textile art, vintage menus to a bell that travelled the globe, there’s something for the captain, collector, friend and adventurer in all of us.
