Te Rau Aroha Museum
Te Rau Aroha, a new museum on the upper grounds at Waitangi, opened on 5 February 2020. The museum commemorates the service and sacrifice of Māori in the NZ Armed Forces in times of conflict, especially the Pioneer Battalion in World War I and 28 (Māori) Battalion in World War II.
Northscape was proudly chosen to execute the landscape portion of the museum using eco-sourced native plants.
Te Rau Aroha Museum is part of the Waitangi Treaty Grounds and offers an authentic and inspiring cultural experience that encompasses powerful Māori cultural performances in a beautifully carved meeting house, a contemporary award-winning museum and visitor centre, lush native forest and gardens, interactive carving studio, traditional Māori waka (canoe) and hāngi (traditional feast), entertaining guided tours and more, overlooking the stunning Bay of Islands.
