My favourite taonga is Sir Edmund Hillary’s climbing axe that he used to climb his way to the summit of Mount Everest. I enjoy walking past and admiring this iconic piece of New Zealand and world history which accompanied Hillary on a journey that brought him fame as well as the affection of his country.
Favourite Part of the Museum
My favourite part of the museum is the Origins Gallery. Every time I walk through, I gaze at the amazing dinosaur replicas that we have on display. For a moment I feel as though I have stumbled into ‘Jurassic Park’ as I admire at the awesome grandeur of the cryolophosaurs and malawisaurus as well as other prehistoric creatures that once occupied Aotearoa New Zealand.
I enjoy travelling and the most intriguing place I’ve visited was the gates of Area 51.
