As the Hawaiki cable is about to be connected off Mangawhai Heads, giving New Zealand a faster connection to the rest of the world, Mangawhai Museum is proud to present a very special exhibition.
In just over 100 years, we've gone from only being able to hear music if someone played it on an instrument, to being able to hear any one of millions of songs of every type and from almost every country, 24 hours a day.
Bringing the World Closer covers this and many other incredible advances in communication technology.
Try your skills at morse code. Make a call on some of the earliest telephones. Explore some of the most rudimentary methods of communication, see how far we've come and imagine what comes next.
