Administrative history

In the 1970s, the Wellington Harbour Board (Wellington, New Zealand) created a small museum to house its collection of artifacts detailing the story of Wellington harbour and maritime history. The Wellington Harbour Board Maritime Museum was opened in 1972 and was a resounding success. When the Harbour Board wound-up in 1989, the museum became the Wellington Maritime Museum.. On 27 November 1999, the Museum re-opened as the Museum of Wellington City & Sea, with a mission to preserve, promote and present Wellington's heritage - social, cultural and maritime.
