MTG’s popular Tours of the Napier Hill Cemetery return for another summer season.

Join MTG Collections Assistant - Archives, Gail Pope and award winning New Zealand author Peter Wells on a guided tour and discover the stories of some of Napier’s early colonists, from the famous to the infamous.

Hear tales of tragedy - from falling under a train after a high spirited picnic, to dying from fumes on a burning ship. See the elaborate tomb of a poisoned wife created by a guilty husband and the simple totara grave stones raised by friends to the departed.

What to bring: Sturdy walking shoes, sun hat and sunscreen and bottled water.

Allow 1 & 1/2 - 2 hours

Sunday 1st February at 2pm
