What do Niuean nose flutes, Crown Lynn saucers, the Mt Tarawera eruption and ancient Egyptian mummies have in common?
They’re all things you can learn about from the comfort of your home thanks to Auckland Museum’s online collections.
More than a million catalogue records
Collections Online allows you to search more than a million catalogue records from the natural sciences, human history and documentary heritage collections.
You can browse the collections by topic, or explore search highlights. Topics include archaeology, geology, natural science, Māori history, ethnology and more.
The online collections are continually updated, and new images and records are added weekly.
The goal is to eventually digitise every artefact in the museum’s collections.
