Virtual Museum

Welcome to Ko Taku Reo’s virtual museum. This 360° interactive experience brings our school’s rich history to you, wherever you are.

The Virtual Museum is based on our two onsite museums, which are located at our Auckland campus (previously Kelston Deaf Education Centre) and Christchurch campus (previously van Ash Deaf Education Centre). Users can “walk” around the museums and click on objects to learn more about them.

The Virtual Museum currently features 20 historical artefacts from each location. This may be expanded over time.

We welcome feedback on how you found this experience! Please contact us via
