The New Zealand Society are delighted to offer our members and guests a personal tour at The British Museum
The British Museum has a collection of over 2700 objects from New Zealand. These include Māori objects collected on the three Pacific voyages of James Cook, treasures presented to Governor George Grey on his departure from New Zealand in 1853, and more recently acquired works by New Zealand contemporary artists. This tour will focus on the 18th century taonga in the gallery Enlightenment, and the M?ori meeting house display which includes work by carver and artist George Nuku.
