New Parliament Tours Showcase Art Of Aotearoa New Zealand

16 February 2024

Parliament has two new art tours to showcase some of the work from the Parliamentary Collection. The two new tours come as part of a range of new tours in 2024, giving visitors the chance to experience and celebrate people who have contributed to New Zealand’s history.

Tour highlights include visits to themed select committee rooms, along with seeing the art in the Speaker's Lounge and Dining Room (not normally accessible on a tour of Parliament).

The 45-minute “Toi Tamariki: Youth Art Tour” gives young people and their families the chance to explore the Parliamentary Collection.

Through imaginative and creative discussion of a selection of works, young participants will gain an understanding of how women’s suffrage, migration and Māori representation have been celebrated at Parliament and how these works contribute to our diverse and ever-changing community.

The two new tours come as part of a range of new tours in 2024, giving visitors the chance to experience and celebrate people who have contributed to New Zealand’s history.
