“Must-see Waikato Attraction”
Reviewed 17 February 2017

Incredibly knowledgeable staff who are beyond passionate about what they do. Exhibits range from New Zealand and Maori culture to internationally significant attractions. The displays are not your typical facts-on-the-wall type, instead using innovative resources to create an immersive and inventive experience. I visit the museum every two years or so - after today, I will change this to once every few weeks.
