Dali & the Surrealist

at Te Papa

Our tour to Wellington in July is timed to experience the major exhibition of Dali and the Surrealist at Te Papa.   Plus optional ballet

The Museum in Rotterdam that houses these priceless works have worked with Te Papa to bring this exclusive exhibition to Wellington for a winter art season.

Continuing the theme we have arranged an exclusive guided tour of the Parliamentary Art collection, and out of town visit to the Porirua Art & Museum and timed the tour to enable those who wish to attend the Royal New 

Zealand ballet “The Firebird” with Paquita.  A visit to Weta workshop is also included.
