Space Museum: Collection of Space Artefacts & Memorabilia
Our collection is relatively small but we do have some genuine historic artifacts. As far as we know this is the only public collection of space memorabilia in New Zealand.
Some of our museum pieces:
Items from the Space Shuttle program, mostly small spare parts and related ground-based equipment.
Cue card that was used on the Apollo 9 mission.
Signed on the back by Apollo 9 commander Jim McDivitt.
We also have:
- Space books, newspapers and other publications
- Philatelics (postage stamps, etc)
- The historic Harry Williams 52cm telescope from Auckland Observatory
