Museum Hunts

He Rapuhanga ā-Whare Taonga

We offer a range of Museum Hunts suitable for 4 – 12-year-olds, with changing themes and challenges every school holiday. A Hunt is a great way to explore the Museum together.

This period, a C-130H Hercules has dropped a series of summer holiday supplies around the Museum.
There are 8 supply crates to find. Follow the trail clues on the underside of each crate lid to locate them all! There are 3 difficulties you can choose from: Trainee Level, Rookie Level and Loadmaster Level. Which will you pick?

Available from the Welcome Desk at any time.

Price: $5.00 including an entry in the draw for an amazing prize. When you buy 2 hunts, you get a third for FREE, so bring your friends!


Once you’ve completed your hunt you’re eligible to enter the draw to win an Akaroa Nature Cruise Family Pass, courtesy of our friends at Black Cat Cruises.

(One winner will be drawn on 29 April 2024).

This prize will change with each new Hunt release but will be of approximately equivalent level of awesomeness.
