The Auckland War Memorial Museum (also known as the Auckland Museum) is home to a number of items relating to the natural history, military history, and cultural history of New Zealand, including a number of items relating to Maori history. For educators and others interested in the museum's collection, the museum offers a materials and resources page. While a few of these resources are designed to be used in conjunction with a visit to the Auckland Museum, other resources may be used independently to engage learners with New Zealand wildlife, history, and culture. For instance, "He Purapura: Maori language game" is an interactive activity that invites visitors to learn words for taonga (treasures of Maori culture) and words related to Maori art. The game incorporates photographs of items in the museum's collection. Other activities in this collection engage learners with the marine life near New Zealand.
