Both the Maori and the WW1 exhibits were spectacular. Sorry the WW1 exhibit is to be dismantled - I think it should be a permanent fixture. Well appointed, well researched, well written and the figures are spectacular.

Loved the exposition about how volcanoes work and the geological history of NZ. Clear explanations and interactive fun (an earthquake room). The Maori exposition and great war place were a little boring.

The best WW1/Gallipoli exhibition I have seen. Peter Jackson has done an incredible job at bringing the past to life in an engaging, educational manner. Highly recommend.

Went and saw the new bug special exhibition. Very good set up but quite expensive for the exhibition. A lot of interactive parts made it fun.
