Fun Palace at Devonport


Unfortunately due to ongoing COVID-19 Alert Level restrictions and uncertainty around when Auckland will be at Alert Level 1 and safely able to host Fun Palace, we have decided to cancel this year’s event.

Our first priority is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our sharers, staff and our community. We would like to say a huge thank you to our sharers who were willing to give up their time and share their skills with our community. We hope to see them again next year for Fun Palace at Devonport 2022. 


Experience Fun Palace at the Navy Museum and Devonport Library on Saturday 2nd October, 2021 10am – 3pm.

Explore Devonport’s rich heritage and cultural diversity through free and exciting activities suitable for all ages run by the community, for the community. Great day out for the whole family.

On Saturday 2nd October, the Navy Museum and Devonport Library  will explode with stimulating free activities, celebrating culture and heritage in Tᾱmaki Makaurau – Auckland and you’re invited!

Fun Palace will celebrate and provide opportunities to learn about and experience Tᾱmaki Makaurau – Auckland our natural landscape, historic architecture, tᾱonga and the stories of our pioneering trailblazers that lived and worked in Devonport.

Discover the Museum’s newly restored mine stores and learn about the 19th century submarine mine station. Enjoy creating, learning and observing the passions and hobbies of the community at the Library – whether it’s sifting through recycled fabrics from our past to make your bunting, creating stories from old photographs or a chance to try something you haven’t done before. We’re bringing together arts, science, culture, craft, tech, heritage and other activities but most importantly people – to work together, create together, have FUN together, and in so doing rediscover and create a shared heritage.
