Tai Tapu Sculpture Garden


Frequently Asked Questions

Can we visit the garden outside of exhibition times?

Yes, but by appointment only.

Please contact us, and we will organise a time and someone to meet you and your group. You may then wander about as you see fit, or have a 'guided tour'. If you have special requests (eg bringing a well behaved/controlled dog, babies in push chairs, picnic) please ask prior to coming. Outside of exhibition times there is not a toilet. Depending upon your wishes, best to allow a minimum of 30-40 minutes, but you may wish to sit, relax, reflect, talk or wander for longer.
