I was very impressed with this museum. They have a great collection of Maori items and our guide was very good. It's a modern well designed space with lots of interesting stuff from Maori to Flora and Fauna. Highly recommended!

A wonderful place on a wet day. There's so much to do there. From the children's play corner near the cafe on the ground floor to the wonderful Natural History museum on the top floor there's something for everyone. The butterfly house is just lovely...More

Found this museum by accident, but was a wonderful visit. It has attractions for all ages and tastes. There were many themes, so do allow at least two to three hours to look around, you will not be dissapointed.
