  • NSTP is a unit within Te Papa. Their mission is to strengthen the museum sector by providing practical and strategic help to museums and iwi throughout Aotearoa New Zealand.
    As part of the government act the Te Papa board has the function:
    To cooperate with and assist other New Zealand museums in establishing a national service, and
    of providing appropriate support to other institutions and organisations holding objects or collections of national importance.

    The team has 8 staff, 5 who are permanently based at Te Papa and 3 Development Officers who work in the field providing face to face support and feeding back to the team the needs of the sector.

  • NSTP offers support, advice, and practical assistance on museum matters such as:
    governance, management, and planning
    care of collections and taonga
    exhibitions and other public services

  • NSTP is committed to building the skills of all museum personnel, and improving opportunities for professional development. Their services and programmes cover all aspects of museum practice, and they provide training at both regional and national levels.
    Through consultation they identify the training needs of individual museums, and groups of museums. They provide a range of professional development and training opportunities, ranging from entry level to advanced. Workshops are held on marae and in museums to meet the varying needs of New Zealand’s museums and iwi. They also have a Museum Internship Graduate Programme and Museum Internship and Secondment Programme
  • The New Zealand Museums Standards Scheme Ngä Kaupapa Whaimana a Ngä Whare Taonga o Aotearoa supports both large and small museums to reach higher levels of professionalism.

    Practical and user-friendly, the Standards Scheme manual assists museums to review their practices against a set of standards. Museums can see where they’re doing well, and identify areas for improvement.

    Participating in the Standards Scheme also sends a message to current or potential funders that a museum is committed to best practice and continuous improvement.

    The manual is a free tool for museums to use in the way that suits them best. For example:
    In a formal review process, museum personnel review their own practices against the standards in the manual, then we arrange for peer reviewers to visit and carry out a review. This service is offered to museums at no charge.

    Informally, museum personnel use the manual as a resource guide for operating and governing their museum.

    For a free copy of the Standards Scheme manual or to register or find out more about the Scheme, contact us – details are at the back of this brochure.

    Iwi can use the manual for guidance in the long-term care of taonga, and in safeguarding their heritage for the future.
