Learn about modern New Zealand's founding document
Opened in 2016, New Zealand's Museum of Waitangi offers innovative and interactive exhibits showcasing the Treaty of Waitangi signed in 1840 between more than 500 Maori tribal chiefs and the British Crown representing the country's colonial settlers. The Treaty is still regarded as an essential, living document under New Zealand law, and the museum explains how the important agreement has influenced, and continues to influence, New Zealand society. After visiting the museum, explore the beautiful oceanfront Treaty Grounds, take in a Maori cultural performance including song and dance, and discover Maori taonga (treasures) including a wonderfully-carved meeting house built in 1940 to mark the Treaty's centenary.
