Schools visits

If you want the perfect complement to your study, look no further than Russell Museum. We have it all – a model of Captain Cook’s Endeavour, connections to whaling days, early settler life, and contemporary exhibitions.

Our digital display called ─¬pipiri allows you to find out about how the Bay of Islands environment was before people arrived, and what is being done today to bring back the birdsong through Project Island Song.  It also tells the stories of what happened when the Endeavour and its crews arrived into the Bay from both a Maori and European perspective. 

Come and see our historic video and hear “our stories”. We are a member of the Bay of Islands Education Network so you can plan your visit to the Bay of Islands with a range of educational options.
