Introducing Volume: Making Music in Aotearoa, a new landmark exhibition at Auckland Museum!

The first of its kind, Volume is a free interactive exhibition spanning seven decades of New Zealand music.

Packed full of songs, stories, instruments, costumes and more, Volume celebrates the songs we fell in love to, broke up to, and everything in-between.


There are five interactive zones:

o 2000s- Step into a recording studio, get behind the producer’s desk and mix an iconic song by music legend Che Fu

o 1990s- Mix some beats as a DJ with tracks by Ladi6, P-Money and Scribe and more, and try your hand at VJing (video DJing) by mixing song and video together

o 1980s- Browse hundreds of kiwi records in an 1980s record store

o 1970s- Learn how to play iconic Kiwi song ‘Rain’ by Dragon in a replica of a 1970s pub venue

o 1950s/60s- Dance along with go-go girls on the set of C’mon in the 1960s

Discover your soundtrack to New Zealand at Volume: Making Music in Aotearoa. On Now at Auckland Museum. Free with museum entry!
