Hawkes Bay Museum And Art Gallery - Review
Having undergone a major restoration project in recent years, this terrific “big little” museum has once again opened its doors to the public. In a remarkable compact area, the intelligently designed centre gives off an impression of magnificence and splendour as it strives to bring together the best of New Zealand’s cultural heritage to one place. One entire section dedicated to the earthquake that levelled Napier and reconstruction that followed. Another delves into an intimate look into Napier’s history. The artwork compiled comes from the very best of New Zealand’s old and contemporary genius. The museum also holds some of the country’s best Maori archaeological collections. Right outside, a startlingly impressive café has come up, almost as big a crowd puller as the museum itself. The 330-seat theatre within museum is no less impressive; leading architect Guy Natusch designed it.

Hawkes Bay Museum And Art Gallery, Napier Reviews
Great time here.. my 6 year old took me along and showed me around.beautiful lady playing the piano.
A wonderful place. I love the history on display. The library, though small, has great service.
Great for a free museum. The little expositions are really interesting and the one about the earthquake is chockinly good. Well located in town, near the water front. Also doubles as the library and has wifi all around the museum. Nice gift shop. I removed a star because the staff at the entrance didn't welcome us or offered to explained to rooms or anything. They just kept talking to each other.
Interesting place to go whether you are an arty person or not. Galleries are free and nice to explore. I enjoyed my time there.
Cute wee place with well displayed and arranged taonga/treasures
