  • This is highlighting the history of New Zealand . The culture and the origin of Maori. This is one of the best museum I have been to. It is worth seeing. It only 10 Kms. from the main town Akaroa. Maori were the first inhabitants of NZ .
  • Awesome place, very reasonable price, spectacular nature, very rich Mauory museum
  • Fascinating insight to colonialism and Maorii life
  • Wow! What a surprise! Having visited numerous museums during our visits to NZ, we have seen some impressive displays. What a comprehensive collection of Maori and colonial artefacts! Would love to see the NZ Government give some funding so that these wonderful items could be preserved and displayed to their full advantage. Concerned to see very old magazines etc out in the elements. If you don't mind a bit of a hairy drive, it is worth seeing. Robyn Tank - Ipswich, Australia.
