Phar Lap’s Skeleton

In the 1930s a New Zealand horse became a racing legend in Australia. Since then we’ve been sharing his success and what remains of his body.

Tales from Te Papa is a fascinating series of mini-documentaries showcasing many of the exciting, wonderful and significant objects held in our national museum.

Tales from Te Papa was commissioned by TVNZ 7, in partnership with Te Papa.
