- Suspended or cancelled events and programmes include Weekend Wonders – Dig for Dinosaurs, The Antarctica VR Experience, Fazioli, LIVE at the Museum, Ata Hira – Museum on the Move, Café Scientifique, Wildlife Selfie Safari and all Anzac Day events and activities.

Where applicable we will be in touch with ticket-holders for the above events to arrange refunds.
