Discover the awe-inspiring world of the Colossal Squid at the Western Bay Museum! From 4th July to 30th September 2024, immerse yourself in the wonder of this rare creature at the highly anticipated exhibition, Colossal Squid Ngu Tipua is developed and toured by the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa.

Delve into the captivating science and hidden marvels behind one of New Zealand's most remarkable natural history specimens. Only eight adult colossal squid have ever been scientifically documented, making this exhibition a truly unique opportunity to uncover its mysteries.
