Ultimate Insects: George Hudson’s collection

There was no television to watch when George Gibbs went to visit his grandfather. Instead he played with several thousand dead insects. This fascinating collection was the life’s work of his grandfather George Hudson.

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.
