Māngungu Mission, site of the largest signing of Te Tiriti o Waitangi

Many of the heritage places we care for will be open to the public free of charge on Waitangi Day.

We invite all to experience this nation’s history and our journey to the present day at these significant places, which all contribute to the story of early Māori and Pākehā society and interactions. 

The open day celebrates the core principles at the heart of Te Tiriti: partnership, protection and participation.
