Tours of Archives New Zealand

Please note that there have been changes to tours at Archives New Zealand's Wellington Office.

Constitution Room: Reduced Hours

The Constitution Room is now open between Monday-Friday 10am and 4pm only.

In preparation for He Tohu, a new exhibition showcasing our constitutional documents, records will be temporarily removed from their cabinets by our Preservation team. Replica documents will be on display in the meantime.
