  • WOW. simply the best museum i ever been to. My kids and me explored the 6 levels over 4 half days and had so much fun. We enjoyed the many different galleries, live shows, historical stories presented in a fantastic way. The kids lead us on a enriching journey through New Zealand history. Well done to all involved

  • This is the best museum I’ve been to so far. There are many interesting themes about New Zealand, from the history of Maori, culture of early settlers, wild life animals and birds, volcanoes to nowadays living styles. You definitely don’t want to miss it!

  • Highly recommended experience going through The Great War exhibition. Although self guided, information was presented in a large variety of ways to engage with. An informative and sobering experience. We took two hours to go through in an effective but not totally thorough way.

  • It's huge and has heaps of neat things to do for the family. Kids will be occupied the entire day. Heaps of interactive sections. Nice Cafe for lunch. Friendly staff if you ever need assistance. Often bring in new displays as well.

  • One of my favourite places to visit. I enjoy the many exhibitions of history and modern art, culture, and natural history. It is free admission. It is accessible for all people. There are cafeterias and a souvenir shop. And a secure cloak room to store belongings while you spend time in the museum. There is a viewing deck on the top floor to look out over Wellington & the harbour.
