But when a logging company comes near the rainforest, she sees that they do exist, and even accidentally shrinks one of them: a boy named Zak.

Follow the monarchs’ perilous journey and join hundreds of millions of real butterflies in the remote mountain peaks of Mexico, with breathtaking cinematography from an award winning team including Oscar winner Peter Parks.

Be captivated by the true and compelling story of an intrepid scientist’s 40-year search to find the monarchs’ secret hideaway.

Unravel the mysteries and experience the Flight of the Butterflies in the Perpetual Guardian Planetarium, then make it a combo with a trip to Tūhura's Tropical Forest.

Zealandia

Zealandia

In 2017, a team of researchers announced the greatest geological discovery of our time: the existence of an eighth continent, almost completely submerged beneath the Pacific Ocean. They called their discovery Zealandia.

How Zealandia became a refuge for one of the strangest collections of animals on the planet is a mystery 85 million years in the making. Journey through time to see some of the weird and wonderful life on these remote islands, survivors of the geological equivalent of Atlantis.

This Perpetual Guardian Planetarium show has been created locally by Otago Museum and NHNZ, with scientific advice provided by the University of Otago and GNS Science, and supported by a grant from the Marjorie Barclay Trust.

Just one more reason this part of our planet is so spectacular and unique!

Admittance to planetarium is restricted to ages 3 and up.

Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult.
