    Discover Ancient Wonders at the Next SCANZ Auckland Event! 

    Join us for an exclusive and captivating journey through time at the Auckland Museum, which is currently hosting the incredible Egypt: In the Time of the Pharaohs exhibition. With the largest collection of Egyptian artefacts ever to arrive in New Zealand—some dating back an astonishing 4,500 years—this is a truly unmissable experience for history enthusiasts of all ages. 

    We are thrilled to announce that the Museum’s new Archaeology Curator, Josh Emmitt, has generously offered to personally guide us through this extraordinary Exhibition. Josh will provide insightful commentary, with a special focus on the surface coatings of these ancient treasures. This is a rare opportunity to gain expert insights into a world that has fascinated humanity for millennia. 

    We are incredibly grateful to maintain our strong partnership with the Auckland Museum, a collaboration that allows us to offer our SCANZ members and attendees unique and enriching experiences.

    After our inspiring tour, we will reconvene at the cozy Tuitui Museum Bistro and Café for some delightful nibbles and networking opportunities. Unwind and share your impressions with fellow enthusiasts, all in the presence of a cash bar offering a wide selection of beverages. 

    Please note, there is a modest fee for this event to cover entrance to the Exhibition. 

    This is your chance to immerse yourself in the grandeur and mystery of ancient Egypt, right here in Auckland. Secure your spot today – spaces are limited and this event is expected to be exceptionally popular! 

    Reserve your tickets now and prepare for an unforgettable exploration of Egypt, through the eyes of a passionate and knowledgeable curator. 

    We can't wait to journey through time with you at the next SCANZ Auckland event! 

    Please note that once you register, we will be locking in your place for the exhibition with the Museum, so there will be no refunds after 1 October.
