Day 44: Today we are doing a bit of a culture crawl in New Plymouth by visiting the Puke Ariki Museum in Taranaki then checking out a Gallery at Jetcharm event.

About this video:

Today’s activity on New Zealand’s Biggest Gap Year is the Puke Ariki Museum in Taranaki! The Puke Ariki Museum is in the centre of New Plymouth and the perfect rainy day activity in Taranaki.

The Puke Ariki Museum is full of exhibitions from Maori history to natural history and beyond. We spend way too much time in the kid’s exhibition playing on slides and playing on the interactive displays...

After spending a huge amount of time in the free Puke Ariki Museum in Taranki, we head back to our accommodation at the Ducks & Drakes Backpackers where we hear there is a gallery event happening at a barber shop in New Plymouth tonight called the Gallery at Jetcharm. It’s a small pop-up gallery that runs monthly events where a theme is chosen and people can submit their work to be on display on the gallery and put up for sale. It’s a great way for us to meet some creative locals in New Plymouth, Taranaki.

So what do you think of the Puke Ariki Museum in Taranaki? And how about the Gallery at Jetcharm? Let us know in the comments below!
