From the Museum of New Zealand (Te Papa) Blog:

Today we are extremely happy to let you know about our latest development; over 30,000 images downloadable, for free, in the highest resolution we have them. You can search for and download them at Collections Online.

Over 14,000 images are available under a Creative Commons licence CC BY-NC-ND.

[Our emphasis] But even better are the 17,000 images that downloadable for any use, any use at all. These images have no known copyright restrictions. Again it would be good if you attributed the original maker of the work, and link to the page on Collections Online so others can find it, but that isn’t mandatory.

We’ve made these images available under these licences for quite a while now, but it hasn’t been easy to download high resolution copies of them up to this point.
