  • Bigger museum than I expected. You get a lot for your money (5$ for visitor). There is a good exposition about the Maori story, one about Da Vinci, some modern art and a boat. Well located, beautiful view of the river.
  • An excellent place to learn about the area. Well presented displays. Loved that the daVinci exhibit was there too
  • Much better than you may expect from a 'smaller' museum. Excellent content and the Da Vinci section is a must see
  • Fascinating exhibitions. Well run children's school holiday workshops
  • Well presented displays and knowledgeable staff which made for a enjoyable experience. Another bonus is that it's free for locals.
