Take a walk through time with a visit to the Department of Corrections’ Heritage Centre.
As well as the history of corrections in New Zealand, the centre looks at Corrections today, with multi-media displays showcasing our modern facilities and Corrections’ focus on reducing re-offending.
- Enter a replica cell and imagine what it was like living in such cramped conditions.
- See some of the intriguing contraband finds, such as makeshift tattooing equipment, weapons and listening devices.
- View a display of corrections officer and prisoner uniforms through the decades.
- Watch the offender journey from arrest to court, through prison and release.
- Imagine if you would have been able to move around with an old ball and chain.
A special exhibit looks at Corrections’ involvement in World War One. This exhibit is part of the commemorations around the hundred year anniversary of World War One.
