  • Great experience. It is a fantastic and huge museum, completely free. You can easily spend half your days walking around and learning about NZ history, fauna and much more. We paid for the tour which consists on a one hour presentation of all the sections of the museum. They will walk your around and explain what's in each part. I believe it's worth the time and the money. Totally recommended

  • A must-visit place on a trip to Wellington. I had to visit twice as the first time I only went for a quick look what's inside which took me around 2 hours. If you take time to read pretty much everything it would take anyone at least half a day to tour the building. Here you can see informative exhibits that mostly involve around New Zealand's rich culture. Some of them are interactive too. Also has a cafe if you feel the eat to have a quick bite.

  • An amazing tourist stop in the heart of Wellington. We saw a fantastic tribute to the ANZACS of WW1, as well as other great displays. Tho we didn't have a full day to properly see it all, I believe it is a must see attraction in Wellington. Entry is free, but a donation to the venue is greatly appreciated I'm sure

  • Came to Te Papa to see it's new art section Toi Art on Level 4 and 5. Their art section was closed for over a year and I was very keen to see the new displays. I was surprised with the range of art and also the unique display with mixing old with new on these pole like structures and the very contemporary design of the exhibition layout. My favorite section was just a small wall of paintings and was called 'Modern Masters' which was a selection of delicious paintings such as Andy Warhol's illustration of a beautiful high heeled purple shoe. I was there when it was quite busy so I probably didn't get the whole of the show, so I will have to go back. Their art show was over all very modern and kind of futuristic, with a touch of industrial architecture. There are several other fun shows at Te Papa, a garden, around New Zealand's cultural / human history, nature and children's discovery rooms. Most shows are completely free at Te papa, there are several shops, cafes , toilets, lifts and stairs. It's a real fun place that's fun for everyone.

  • This free museum is a must do when you are in Wellington. There is something to suit everyone. It's just a fabulous building in its self. It has two cafes....the ground floor cafe is great choice for families. Don't miss the education rooms on each level the hands on experience will keep the little ones amused.
