Get creative these school holidays and write or draw the most interesting story you can think of about the themes in our Matariki at the Museum: Trilogy One exhibition.

Maybe you will write your story about an expedition to view a solar eclipse, or make a mini magazine (zine) and draw the combustion of a star!

Let your imagination guide you to your own original story.
