Crown Lynn: A Māori Story is a riveting slice of New Zealand history, telling the iconic story of Crown Lynn pottery and the generations of Maori families that worked there.

For almost 50 years, Crown Lynn was the biggest ceramics factory in the southern hemisphere. Situated in West Auckland, it was a melting pot of rich culture in a post-war era when hundreds of Māori migrated to the city to find work.
