Puke Ariki Museum in New Zealand

The Puke Ariki Museum in New Zealand tells the stories of the Taranaki region and people, which gets its name from Mount Taranaki, the second-highest peak in the country.

Located in New Plymouth, Taranaki”s biggest city, the museum describes life in the region through exhibitions, displays, collections and technology.

Puke Ariki has four permanent exhibitions on display – Te Takapou Whariki o Taranaki, Taranaki Experience, Taranaki Life and Taranaki Naturally, all of which hold treasures that belong to and have shaped the history of the people and place of Taranaki.

Delve deeper into the stories of the region, some of which can be sourced to previously unpublished Maori writings – these accounts from the past are told using light, sound, and push-button interactives.

The museum is open from 9:00 to 18:00 on weekdays, except Thursday when it is open until 21:00.

On weekends, the opening hours are 9:00 to 17:00.
