Amazing visit to National Archives to view Te Tiriti/The Treaty ... and read/see the history of Aotearoa ... relax in the library of amazing resources. This is a 'must do' visit. It's FREE too! There's a cafe in the foyer.

Only a quick visit but an amazing resource an interesting part of Wellington too as not far from the National Library also, great coffee shops near by, the NZ Government buildings about 5-10 minutes walk away and plenty of beautiful gardens to sit in.

A great place to do research, very helpful staff and great space to work in. The archives house some surprising materials. I finally found a photo of the woman i am writing my book about.
