The Treaty House at the Waitangi Treaty Grounds has re-opened its doors to the public with a new exhibition installed by Workshop e.
Greg McManus, CEO of the Waitangi Treaty Grounds, says the upgrade of the Treaty House is the latest stage of an ongoing project to develop a world-class visitor experience at the Treaty Grounds.
‘The Treaty House, or Busby House as it is sometimes known, was the site of some of the most important events in our nation’s history. It is central to our story as a nation and deserves to be looked after and interpreted well,’ he says.
The parlour where the finishing touches were made to the Treaty explores Busby’s influence on the English version and his final touches to Williams’ Māori version, Te Tiriti.
Large quotes and a central audio-visual table aims to inspire visitors to think about the momentous events that took place in the room.
