INCLUDED IN GENERAL ADMISSION

Join us in July for an experience that is out of this world!

Tūhura Tuarangi is packed with hands-on interactives to play with, build, launch, and explode with your whole whānau.

Discover the amazing space technologies and world-leading research going on right here in Aotearoa New Zealand and learn about all the space-related careers that are unfolding.

This showcase started at Tūhura Otago Museum in Ōtepoti Dunedin and is now travelling nationwide, bringing the magic of space, exploration, and science to towns and cities across the motu.

See it at MOTAT Aviation Hall.

Please note: Photography and filming may take place on the day for marketing purposes.
