Copy of Dominion Museum Building

The New Zealand Dominion Museum Building was completed in 1936 and originally housed the National Museum and the National Art Gallery. The building is now part of the Wellington Campus and houses a number of unique event spaces.

Located behind the National War Memorial at Pukeahu Park, the prestigious location and proximity to Wellington CBD has made the Dominon Museum one of Wellington’s most sought after venues.

The ground floor of the building is currently closed as refurbishment takes place. This work is due for completion in 2020. Two spaces remain available during these works:

Theatrette - a 200 capacity theatre with small stage, grand piano and full AV set-up. A green room and back-stage area make this venue perfect for film screenings, panel discussions, performances and keynote sessions.

Tea Gardens - the original Tea Rooms at the Dominion Museum. This 300 capacity venue retains the original wooden floors, royal daulton wall tiles, large art-deco windows and high-vaulted ceilings.
