Very interesting and it's for free!
Excellent displays with plenty of space to move around. Nice to be greeted upon arrival by a guide who explained layout.
Learning from the Maori + New Zealand
If only we had known, we could have spent a whole day there!
Interesting museum, with lots of interactive options and exhibitions for every taste
Excellent exhibition of history of NZ and it's people. We would pay for this but it leaves with the feeling that NZ is very keen to make visitors feel welcome.
lives upto the hype -not to be missed.
