Great museum, good for everyone, much information and lots of different categories.
Amazing interactive museum and on top of it, it is free!! You could easily spend the whole day there. Definitely a must do in Wellington.

Free but donations are welcome. If you enjoy history and information leave a day to explore. Great exhibits and history of New Zealand. Viewing terrace on the top level is a great lookout for Wellington.
Great museum - full of interesting exhibitions and lots of different parts of New Zealand history to appreciate and learn about.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Great museum for any age! They put a lot of thought into what and how to display, which makes it really interesting and enjoyable.
I really like the Museum of New Zealand, I did not see all of it because it is so big and there are so many details. And it is free!
Thank You - to the thousands of travellers that have contributed to our Top Voted NZ Activities Map - it's free from Rankers.
One of the best museums for free I have ever been. I liked the way they present the information.
What an incredible day with interesting and well presented content. Gallipoli, the scale of 'our war' exhibition was especially enjoyable and interesting.
First story was amazing showing New Zealand animals and plants. The other stories like history of participation in WW1 was rather weak. Nevertheless, great for free entry.
You can learn a lot about New Zealand culture, nature and history. Nice to spend the whole day there (best to do on windy, rainy days).
Normally we do not like museums but this was a nice one. A big museum where you can see a lot about New Zealand. It was interesting.
Huge museum with so many things to do and see. One day is not enough!!
Amazing and FREE! Great exhibitions with the Gallipoli in particular a highlight. You must go if in Wellington.
