The New Zealand Olympic Museum was established in 1998. Its purpose is to be the Centre of Legacy for the New Zealand Olympic Committee’s involvement and participation at both the Olympic and Commonwealth Games.
The Museum is a repository of the inspiration to New Zealand Youth that our Olympians and Commonwealth Games athletes offer. Through their stories of Games participation, and their gifted memorabilia, the Museum offers a range of exhibitions and displays that are topical and designed to promote Olympism and Olympic Values.
As an outcome of the New Zealand Olympic Committee relocating its headquarters to Auckland, the Olympic Museum Gallery at Queens Wharf, Wellington closed in January 2013. The New Zealand Olympic Museum remains fully operational, however, we offer no public access until further notice. We are developing new and exciting ways of delivering Olympic Museum content via www.olympic.org.nz, and developing outreach mobile museum initiatives.
