"We will, by 2012, if all goes according to plan, have built, or undertaken major refurbishments of, around 50 new museum and gallery facilities in 14 years, at a cost roughly equivalent to that of Te Papa a decade ago. This represents a total, including Te Papa, of about a billion dollars in 20 years. Eighty percent of this money will have been spent in the four main centres and just under half the projects will have accounted for 94% of it."
