Quake Braker

Quake Braker is an underground space that displays some of the 135 base isolators that Te Papa sits on.
  • These isolators reduce the severity of shaking in the event of a major earthquake.
  • They’re the invention of New Zealand scientist Dr William Robinson (University of Waikato website) and are now in use in buildings around the world.
More than 1,767,229 people have visited Quake Braker up to December 2014.
