  • Very informative about early life in and development of the area. A few exhibits not up and running fully. The staff were exceptionally friendly and obviously very passionate about the history of the area
  • Cool but a little bit small. A lot of Maori stuff at the ground floor.
  • Interesting collection of artifacts and information
