  • Awesome place seeing old technology brings back a lot of memory of my younger days as a kid that place is mind blowing, this place is worth a visit for young kids seeing old technology and comparing thing to the present day.
  • Great hand-on museum with nice people who explain things well!
  • What an awesome place and an awesome team. We had a my sons 6th birthday party there this morning and everyone enjoyed it thoroughly. I highly recommend the Faraday Centre for anyone, for any reason or no reason at all.

Where to stay in Napier

pier boasts a range of accommodations, most located on the tip of land that ends at the Port of pier. From boutique Art Deco hotels and rental apartments to backpacker hostels, the central district offers options for many tastes and price ranges. With the city's buildings so attractive, a sea view may not be as much of a deal-breaker as it is elsewhere. Farther out of town, you can choose from an array of more economical motels, or at a campsite.
