  • Great theatre space. Shame it doesn't get used much because it's an awesome area. Comfy theatre seats and teched out. Always enjoy the nz international film festival in here.
  • Great museum, a really interesting insight into the Napier earthquake on the basement level. Lots of other exibits in the art levels etc. $10 for a grown up. Cheers!
