Transportation (Directions)

On foot

In central Wellington you’re rarely more than 20 minutes’ walk from Te Papa. You’ll find us on the waterfront, right in the heart of Wellington.

Enjoy a five-minute stroll from the Wellington i-SITE Visitor Information Centre, or a 20-minute walk from the railway station. Many bus stops in the city are just a few minutes’ walk away too.

By bus

Most Wellington buses (including those from the airport and railway station) stop along Courtenay Place and Willis Street. From these stops, it’s just a few minutes’ walk to Te Papa.

Private tour and ‘hop on, hop off’ buses stop outside the museum.

Parking at Te Papa

By train

From Wellington Railway Station it’s a 20-minute walk to Te Papa. Alternatively, you can catch a bus or taxi nearby.

Metlink train routes and timetables
