The Constitution Room has been closed since March for scheduled maintenance in preparation for an equipment upgrade. We now anticipate the new equipment will arrive in May, with installation soon after.
Original documents, including the Treaty of Waitangi and the Women’s Suffrage Petition, will not be available for viewing during the maintenance and upgrade period. The exhibition gallery adjacent to the Constitution Room will remain open to visitors; and is currently showing Te Tiriti | The Treaty Waitangi 175
