About the exhibition
Ngā tapuwae o Kupe | Landmarks of the great voyager is an exhibition developed and toured by Te Papa that celebrates a great Polynesian voyager’s connections with New Zealand. Kupe is regarded by many iwi (tribes) as the ancestor who discovered this country. Kupe Sites, a touring exhibition from the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, explores the stories of Kupe’s encounter with New Zealand through names of various landmarks and places and even the name Aotearoa. Several Marlborough landmarks feature in this exhibition.
