Stopped here on a very quick shore excursion from our cruise. We wished we had more time! Fascinating displays over all the floors and worthy of a few hours at least.

An impressive museum where we learned a great deal about New Zealand’s culture, history, geography, flora and fauna. We experienced the Gallipoli exhibit, the WWI Allied invasion of Turkey that cost many New Zealand and Australian lives; it was an extremely well done and very moving exhibit.

For a free day out with loads of interactive learning for the children.

Its great. Nice to see the culture of NZ on proud display.

There is also art there for the adults to see and experience.
