Children and the curious are invited to roam the newly revamped Blue Water Black Magic gallery looking for answers to the big questions about Aotearoa's boat-building and yacht racing history.

Go on a fantastical journey with Sarah-Jane Blake's interactive artwork, guess the weight of the America’s Cup trophy, find the connection between honeycomb and state-of-the-art hulls and test the circumstances that would cause a carbon-fibre mast to snap.
