What’s with the name?

Museum Street is the “street" at the back of Parliament House and Beehive, right beside the press gallery corridor. It’s not really a street - it’s a driveway and carpark - but you put in Museum Street when you want stuff delivered there. It’s also where Parliament’s smokers/vapers usually gather, so is a fantastic place for gossip.

Who are you?

My name is Henry Cooke. I covered politics from the press gallery between 2017 and 2022 for Stuff, before moving to London for my OE, where I am currently.
