Affordable Meeting Rooms for Hire in Wellington

Welcome to MasseyVenues.com, your premier destination for exceptional meeting room spaces in Wellington.

At MasseyVenues, we take pride in offering three unique and versatile locations to cater to your diverse needs: Dominion Museum Building, Te Ara Hihiko, and Tussock Cafe.

Celebrate your way

Massey is offering meeting rooms at the Dominion Museum Building, Te Ara Hihiko, and Tussock Cafe.

The New Zealand Dominion Museum Building was completed in 1936 and originally housed the National Museum and the National Art Gallery. The building is now part of the Wellington Campus and houses a number of unique event spaces.

Located behind the National War Memorial at Pukeahu Park, the prestigious location and proximity to Wellington CBD have made the Dominion Museum one of Wellington’s most sought-after venues.

The Great Hall is a single large ballroom with a very high ceiling stud. Suited for festivals and trade shows, launch events and seated gala dinners.

Te Ara Hihiko

Te Ara Hihiko, meaning ‘The Creative Pathway’, is home to the College of Creative Arts (CoCA) on our Wellington Campus.

This unique facility was completed in 2012 and houses a range of modern, architecturally designed spaces. With incredible views over Mt. Victoria and Wellington, Te Ara Hihiko is a Wellington icon.

A 126 seat theatre with retractable seating is found in the heart of the building and is surrounded by a range of versatile breakout spaces and large open-plan creative spaces. Large central gallery space has been designed with registration, catering, and conferences in mind.

For a more relaxed and informal setting, Tussock Cafe provides a welcoming environment for smaller gatherings, discussions, or casual meetings.

With a warm ambiance and a variety of catering options, it’s an ideal space to foster connections over coffee and refreshments.

“We hired the Massey AT2 theatre for a pole competition and are so glad we did. Andrea and her team were really helpful with providing all the information required and ensuring we had what we need for the day to run smoothly. The venue itself had all we needed in terms of audience seating, backstage options and a foyer for guests to hang out prior to doors opening. We look forward to using the space again in future”
The room facilities were well-equipped

“In February, we hosted a weeklong workshop at the Massey Albany campus. Our workshop had both online and in-person presentations, as well as breakout workgroups. The room facilities were well-equipped with the technology needed for the presentations; and the space was more than sufficient for the participants to comfortably work in their breakout rooms. The on-site staff were extremely responsive to needs and were a joy to work with during the workshop. In leading up to the course, they were reliable communicators in helping us plan out the week. We definitely hope to be able to run future events here, as the service and venue were terrific. Many thanks to Andrea and her team!”
