Ticketing System To Keep He Waka Tuia Art and Museum Visitors Safe

Being adaptable, patient and determined has been the key to managing plans to
open He Waka Tuia Art + Museum during a global pandemic.

Level Two restrictions have been a bit of an extra challenge for the He Waka Tuia
Art + Museum team ahead of the space finally opening to the public at 12pm on
Saturday, September 12, co-manager David Dudfield said.

“We’ve organised a ticketing system that will keep both our visitors and our staff
safe,” he said

The online system, accessible through the He Waka Tuia website (hewakatuia.nz),
allows people to book themselves in to a number of different timeslots.

Groups of 50 people will be able to book into each 45min interval.

Co-manager Gemma Baldock says having to put a ticketing system in place will
actually work out quite well.

“He Waka Tuia isn’t a huge space. Having smaller groups of people coming through means everyone will be able to really enjoy their experience, as well as keeping themselves and our staff safe.”

Those not keen or able to jump online will still be able to visit, although they may
have to wait in line at the space, at 42 Kelvin St.

“We know that everyone understands that this is just the way we have to do things
now, and we’re asking everyone to be patient and kind,” Gemma said.

The new museum was officially blessed on Thursday morning.
