This is the time of year to remind Friends that the membership year finishes each March.  All renewals received by 8th April 2016  will go in a draw to win one of five Te Papa Store gift cards to the value of $60.00.

A renewal notice has been posted to all whose annual or multi-year membership expires on 31 March 2017.

You can renew by

  • posting your renewal form in the ‘free post’ envelope provided
  • using the online form by following this link
  • making a telephone credit card payment on (04) 381 7051

To acknowledge your continuing support, you will be offered two vouchers for free parking when you renew. (For those who have a five-year membership, this year’s vouchers will be posted to you). Other parking privileges include three hours’ free parking when attending a ‘charged for’ Friends’ event.

As Friends, we enjoy a special and mutually beneficial relationship with Te Papa. We have a unique opportunity to participate in its events, support its public engagement and enhance its acquisition programme while learning more about our cultural and natural heritage.

As always, our programme will have much to offer too: exhibition previews and events, international and local speakers, gallery tours around Wellington and further afield.  The Friends’ website is regularly updated to keep you informed of what is happening.

Your membership also offers discounted entry to Te Papa exhibitions, regular newsletters and updates, a 10 percent discount at both Te Papa cafés and a 15 percent discount at Te Papa Store.

Your continuing support is valued and we look forward to seeing you during the year.
