A call-out for all the wonderful Wellington wonders

Curiosity Roadshow
A call-out for all the wonderful Wellington wonders

Thursday 18 September
5.30pm-6.30pm & 7pm-8pm

Dust off that vase that’s been sitting on your shelf for an age. Pull that unusual painting off the wall. And grab that old, slightly creepy looking china doll and bring it down to the Curiosity Roadshow at the Museum of Wellington City & Sea to have it valued by the Museum’s panel of experts.

The Curiosity Roadshow returns as part of the Museum’s popular Third Thursday series this September (Thursday 18th September at 5.30-6.30pm & 7pm-8pm).

The Museum is currently inviting Wellingtonians to book their objects in for a free appraisal by the capital’s most entertaining and quirky antique dealers, Simon Manchester and Peter Wedde.

Inspired by the popular British TV series Antiques Roadshow, the Museum’s Curiosity Roadshow takes a close look at the weird and wonderful curios hidden away in houses across the capital. The evening will feature two one-hour session of appraisals with free and live entertainment between sessions.

Is your object worth something? Does it tell a story? Is it just fabulously unique? To book an object in for an appraisal, contact the Museum on museumswellington@wmt.org.nz or phone 04 472 8904
