Huge, great for discovering the history of New Zealand. Take you time to see everything.
As it is free, I would have expected something way below what I saw. Te Papa is big, well made and very interesting.

One of the best museums I have seen. Lots of different things, a really good view of the Maori history. Maybe too overcrowded.

Not paid, but highly recommended!! Interesting museum with topics such as earthquakes, volcanoes, forest, ocean, culture and art. Free WiFi in the museum.
Brilliant visual and interactive exhibitions.
A lot to see and do at this museum with five floors to explore. They have everything from the world's only giant squid on exhibition to vintage toys.
What an amazing museum! Located in the heart of the city, on the beautiful waterfront, Te Papa is a very complete and diverse museum, offering plenty of information on New Zealand and Maori history. Do not miss the Gallipoli exhibition!!
Great place to discover about New Zealand, culture and interesting facts about the world in general. Very recommended and for free.
