Ruru goes red ... again

Just in time for the season of red things - strawberries, raspberries and Santa hats - the Ruru team has created a new red I Digress ... scavenger hunt!  This time we are digressing on the subject of summer holidays - on swimming and fishing and hanging out with your friends.  You know, all the good stuff!  And as always, there's an awesome Ruru badge up for grabs once you've roamed the galleries and spotted all our awesome heritage objects.  So give it a go!
The Ruru team is now turning its collective mind to Puke Ariki's Long Term Galleries Refresh Project.  For those of you who don't really know what that is, it's the project to change over the displays in our museum galleries ... which have been up for 10 years!  The question is, what will happen to our famous scavenger hunts when the objects on display start to change?  And where do we fit in when the kinds of experiences offered in our galleries start change too?  Well, we figure we can adapt!  As experts in providing experiences for kids and families in the museum, we plan to add our ideas into the mix.  Who knows what cool stuff we might be able to come up with?! 
So we're excited about 2014 and we hope you are too.  In the meantime, happy festive season to you all!
