Capital E and the Museum of Wellington City & Sea are coming together to present Mysteries of Matiu/Somes these school holidays.

After a fun packed morning of story-telling and filming, kids will be treated to a portion of Wellington’s finest fish & chips for lunch. The OnTV Studio at Capital E will be the last stop of the day, where the children will spend the afternoon editing their filming and discoveries into their own movie.
