Favourite object or taonga
I love the suit of armor just outside the Pacific Lifeways gallery - it's from Kiribati and is mostly made of coconut fiber, but the helmet is a dried puffer fish!
Favourite part of exhibit of the museum
My favourite gallery is Origins, which talks about the formation of our islands and what life existed here millions of years ago.
Fun fact
My longest-lived house plant is now about 5 years old, older than some kids in our classes!
