Scots of New Zealand Exhibition
According to a recent article on TV3 News, "Te Papa launches Scottish Kiwis exhibition," around fifty per cent of New Zealanders can claim some Scottish ancestry, so Te Papa is expecting lots of visitors to their latest exhibition. The Scots in New Zealand exhibition opened Saturday. The Scottish were one of the biggest immigrant streams to New Zealand and with a recent flurry of interest among descendents and academics, Te Papa has launched a two and a half year exhibition on the Scots. Over the next few months, the exhibition will be brought to life with Scottish games, dancing and of course the pipes.
