INCLUDED IN GENERAL ADMISSION

This June, call in to Live Day: Communication and learn about all the different ways you can communicate with the world around you, and how communicating has changed over time.

Check out our exhibition, Get Smart, and discover the journey Aotearoa has taken from room-sized computers to the cell phone in your pocket, from punch cards to coding, from Morse code to Twitter.

Our Telecommunications space offers a unique hands-on experience of telecomms equipment and technology. Try your hand at being a switchboard operator, or have a go with a rotary phone.

Make your own card Bell Colt radio to take home, plus loads of other fun activities!
