Wellington is one of the country’s fastest growing tourism markets, with rapid growth in visitor nights in the last 10 years.
But there is still considerable untapped potential in the market. Not only can we attract more visitors, we can also encourage them to stay longer and spend more.
To do this, the region needs more high-quality tourist attractions – ones that can keep visitors here for an extra day or two.
Wellington City Council is working with private sector partners to establish an international film museum in central Wellington. The museum has potential to be a significant attraction.
The museum would likely require a purpose-built building in a central city location. The Council anticipates that this would be funded through a partnership, able to leverage both public and private investment.
Together with other initiatives that the Council is working towards, this proposal has potential to significantly enhance Wellington’s offering to domestic and international visitors.
