The Senta Taft-Hendry Museum
The Senta Taft-Hendry Museum is now open in a purpose built, dedicated space underneath the University Gallery.
The new museum houses an extensive and diverse collection of artefacts: carved wooden masks used in ancestral pageants, weapons featuring carved bone, cassowary feathers and shells, cooking pots, ancient drums and body adornments.
The collection dates back to the 1950s when Senta Taft Hendry began her travels to Papua New Guinea, West Papua (Irian Jaya), Micronesia, Polynesia and remote Australian communities.
