Red Traffic Light Setting Update 🔴
The Nelson Provincial Museum is doing everything possible to keep you, our visitors, and our people safe.
Given that there are cases of Omicron in our region, we have decided to implement our Red Setting safety procedures from today, rather than waiting until midnight tonight.
As a My Vaccine Pass organisation, we will be keeping an eye on our visitor numbers to ensure that visiting bubbles can maintain a safe social distance from one another. We ask that you please be patient should you experience a wait to enter the Museum.
Our Dinosaur Dig Pit will be closed to the public until we return to the Orange Setting, in order to best protect our tamariki.
As always, if you are visiting the Museum, we ask that you please remember your Vaccine Pass and your face mask. Masks are required to be worn by those who are 12+ in all indoor spaces.
Please stay well, and let’s look after each other. Noho ora mai rā ❤️
Calling all Dinosaur enthusiasts! How much do you know about the Dinosaurs that once called Nelson home? 🦖
Join us on Wednesday 9th February for a FREE presentation by guest speaker, and local Geologist, Dr Greg Browne.
Dinosaurs did indeed roam our region, and while the evidence for their existence is not always abundant in New Zealand, Nelson is the only location where trace fossils (footprints) of dinosaurs have been recorded!
Doors open at 5:15pm and the talk will commence at 5:30pm. A Q&A session will follow Dr Browne’s presentation.
This is a FREE, ticketed event but spaces are limited. Please book your free tickets via the ‘What’s On’ page on our website.
