What people are saying:

The museum is very informative and has a wide variety of exhibition areas to explore different areas according to different tastes. From New Zealand and Maori history to learning about art exploration, old clothes and street displays to the environment/protection education displays, everything is there. Highly recommend this place, even if it's just a quick visit, if you have time to allow you to spend 2-3 hours to see everything. The only drawbacks are the parents' inability to control their children, the children's constant knocking on the glass, and the young people who think they can smoke e-cigarettes in the museum.
