Experience Wellington operates six iconic arts, cultural and science institutions – City Gallery Wellington Te Whare Toi, Capital E, Wellington Museum, Space Place, Nairn Street Cottage, and the Cable Car Museum.
We tell the stories of Wellington so that our history is treasured and shared. We connect audiences with inspiring local and international art. Through our experiences we inspire tamariki and our wider communities to learn about the world around them.
Space Place had the honour of hosting a worldwide screening of Ngā Tohunga Whakatere - The Navigators, simultaneously broadcasting around the world as part of Matariki celebrations as rights to screen the film are being purchased by planetarium...
Experience Wellington is the cultural heart of the capital.
Our extraordinary experiences at City Gallery Wellington, Capital E, Cable Car Museum, Space Place at Carter Observatory, Wellington Museum and Nairn Street Cottage are enjoyed by 700,000 people each year, including 80,000 schoolchildren.
Help us to keep our experiences, exhibitions and events accessible and exciting.
