The Bill Laxon Maritime Library at the New Zealand Maritime Museum focuses on our seafaring heritage, offering resources from books and serials to vessel plans and registers.

These unique resources include Auckland Harbour Board and Northern Steam Ship Company archives, shipboard diaries, and photographic collections. Come and find out about the special resources available to researchers at this reference-only library.

Are you interested in family and local history? Or about the history of New Zealand? Then come along to one of our fortnightly HeritageTalks. Experts in specialised fields deliver these talks and provide insight into our histories.

HeritageTalks take place at Whare Wānanga, Level 2, Central City Library, unless otherwise stated. Booking is recommended.
