Toi Tū Toi Ora Virtual Tour 

Experience the largest and one of the most significant exhibitions presented in the Gallery's 133-year history in an interactive, self-guided virtual tour.

Focusing exclusively on the section in which the exhibition’s curatorial frame – the Māori creation narrative, Aotearoa’s oldest philosophy – unfolds, choose between three different virtual tour experiences:

  • a family tour designed for young curious minds;
  • a curator’s tour that explores exhibition insights and stories;
  • or take a self-guided tour – roam freely and enjoy the art and information provided.

Use the navigation tools to virtually 'walk' through the exhibition, or click on any room in the interactive map to instantly move across exhibition spaces.

Take the tour in English, te reo Māori or simplified Chinese, and discover additional features including audio guides.

The opportunities for storytelling and learning provided by Toi Tū Toi Ora are rich, nuanced and diverse, and this was the primary catalyst behind the project.

By making the exhibition accessible virtually removes barriers to access and keeps the exhibition alive as an experience long after the artworks have come down.
