The Education team at Kiwi North wants to support teachers by making it easy to share special experiences with class or whanau groups.  The team works with a total of  6 Museums in the Whangarei District to support school visits across a wide variety of topics and subject areas from art to zoology

Off-site programmes

Kiwi North’s Educators are able to assist groups off-site to further enhance their learning. We have special arrangements with Matakohe/Limestone Island if you want to take the opportunity for a dual visit/2-day workshop.

The Education Team also supports other museums in the Whangarei District including Claphams Clocks, Waipu Museum and Whangarei Art Museum.

Group size for these programmes is limited to 1-2 classes. Please contact the Education Team for further details.
