Mark­ing a mile­stone

Central Leader - - NEWS -

The Voy­ager New Zealand Mar­itime Mu­seum will be mark­ing its 20th birth­day this week­end with cel­e­bra­tions both on and off the wa­ter.

On Mon­day it will be two decades since the mu­seum opened its doors to the pub­lic on the Waitem­ata Har­bour.

To mark the oc­ca­sion, vol­un­teers and Friends of the Mu­seum have com­piled a 20 Trea­sures: 20 Years trail which high­lights the mu­seum’s vi­sion to pre­serve and share New Zealand’s rich mar­itime her­itage.

Olympic yachts­man Glen Sowry, Wa­ter­front Auck­land chair­man Sir Bob Harvey and solo Tas­man rower Shaun Quincey have each cho­sen an ob­ject with a spe­cial mean­ing to them.

The story be­hind the 20 items will be doc­u­mented in a brochure and guides will be on hand to an­swer ques­tions about them.
