Exhibitions and Events
'Suspicious Looking' - Mug shot exhibition
Collection of mug shots from 1886-1908; this exhibition explores the stories behind these compelling photographs.
We collect evidence of our history in action. Historical objects and original evidence are used in displays that tell the story of the formation of New Zealand's Police as well as their changing role in areas such as drug and alcohol enforcement. Many major historical events also feature, including the 1913 strikes, 1981 Springbok Tour, the Erebus plane disaster and the bombing of the Rainbow Warrior.
