Chinese New Year Celebration

29 January 2022

1pm - 3pm

Free event

Celebrate the Year of the Tiger with an afternoon of festive arts and children's activities.

In collaboration with the Hamilton Branch of the New Zealand China Friendship Society. 


Please note: The programme has been scaled back to minimise contact and gathering under the red light setting. There will be videos displaying cultural traditions and children's activities to take away and complete at home. 


Taking care of our community

At the 'Red' level of New Zealand's COVID-19 Protection Framework (traffic light settings) Waikato Museum is open at our usual hours from 10am to 5pm daily.

  • Show proof of vaccination
  • Use QR code on entry
  • Wear a mask
  • Give space to others

‘My Vaccine Pass’ is a condition of entry at Hamilton City Council facilities, including Waikato Museum and ArtsPost, for people aged 12 years and older. All our staff are vaccinated and we’re following the Government guidelines to stay safe.

While visiting, you need to wear a mask and maintain physical distance from people in other household bubbles. Wearing a mask is a condition of entry at Waikato Museum and ArtsPost as Government requirements make it mandatory for visitors and staff to wear a face covering in public areas. If you have a health-related exemption, please let our staff know and make sure you have the documentation with you.

Visitors are asked to scan our QR code when they enter, or provide their name and contact details via the paper-based register. It is a Government requirement that you keep a record of where you have been (at all alert levels) so contact tracing can happen quickly in the event of a Covid-19 outbreak. This is to keep you, your whaanau, and our community safe.
