Museum Of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, Wellington Reviews - Write a Review

  • A really great (mostly) free museum in a great part of town. Blocks from the backpackers and kept clean, inviting and plenty of space to wander and hang out. Really cool spot, went back many times during my 4 months in Wellington. They have a giant squid (dead) and an earthquake party room! What more could a human being want?!

  • One of the most beautiful museums I've ever visited, providing ample education, culture and fun. The exhibitions are diverse and fascinating (free to Aucklanders, almost $25 for other visitors) and the current special exhibitions are spectacular. It is worth the extra investment to watch the cultural Māori show, that uses music and dancing to explain some basics about ancestor migration and some basic traditions (around $25). Not to be missed experience - but beware, the museum is so large that history lovers will have trouble drinking in the culture and science in just one day.

  • I always enjoy our visits to Te Papa, the exhibitions are fantastic and they are always updating and changing them. The staff are friendly and helpful. It is always clean and tidy. Great for all ages. Only negative is that the eateries can be a little pricey but it's only a minor negative. We visit every time we go to Wellington and can't recommend it enough.

  • I did not have enough time to see even half of this place. You need at least a half day. Everything is well signed. Easy to read descriptions. Friendly knowledgeable staff. It's a great place

  • Brilliant museum, totally free. Amazing exhibits about gallipoli and the new zealand and Maori soldiers involved. Amazing over sized sculptures were the stand out feature. Other exhibits were very interesting too and the building itself is very well designed too. We also ate in the cafe there and it was both very good and very affordable. Overall we had a great visit
