To celebrate the 150th Birthday of Wellington becoming the capital of New Zealand we’re opening the doors to more than 30 national institutions, revealing some of the rarest and most significant collections and important treasures housed in this city. A free hop-on, hop-off bus service, sponsored by Go Wellington, will take visitors around the Open House circuit.

Bring the kids and discover the many projects poised to affect the future of Wellington. Science, engineering, and design experts from Victoria University will showcase just some of their innovative projects, from 3D printing capabilities to how our robots can save lives in disasters, and let us experience things we never could before, from anywhere.

Exhibits include:
- Oculus rift tour of Weta workshop
- Drive a robot and find out how we’re using them to care for our environment, protect people
- Wearable technology
- Digital futures – using 3D printing technology to preserve our archives
