  • Excellent introduction to exhibits and history of NZ

  • Very good museum but additional charges if you want to see all exhibits.

  • This museum is full of wonderful Maori history and New Zealand history. Our guide was very informative and after his presentation we were able to maneuver through this immense volume of New Zealand's history. The World War I exhibit is incredibly realistic.

  • Given the enormity of the museum collection, and the time restrictions imposed by a meagre hour, our guide did as good a job as could be expected, introducing us to some of the key components in the overall collection. Nancy's manner and delivery were both pleasant and solid in the detail given.

  • While i was the, there was a Gallipoli exhibit which was absolutely amazing to go through, as was the entire museum, a must go for an overview of New Zealand history and culture.

  • We took the overview guided tour and would highly recommend it.Our guide was a wealth of information, with a fun sense of humor.

  • We enjoyed the tour we took which was an introduction to some of the key sights in the museum. There was sooo much to see and do and one could spend hours and hours there. Unbelievable that entrance into the museum is free. It was definitely time well spent in Wellington.

  • Excellent tour. We wish it could have been just a little longer to have included more exhibits. Otherwise we really enjoyed it and had free time to explore the museum ourselves afterward.

  • Great tour! Within one hour we saw the highlights of the museum and decided what we wanted to go back to. We checked out an exhibit we otherwise would not have seen and can't stop talking about it. Great way to see the museum if you're not all that into meandering on your own.

  • We paid for a guided tour, and were glad we did, as our guide was very knowledgeable about Maori culture and the various exhibits. The Gallipoli exhibition was very moving, the bigger than life statues were truly realistic and the narrative very touching. We had three hours to spare, and could have kept looking about for another three hours. Excellent museum.
