  • Easily accessible and in the centre of town. A wonderful exhibition is on at present by National Geographic. Amazing photography. A very nice way to pass some time.
  • Decent little museum and a great way to spend an hour or two. Was fun to learn about Nelson and we were fortunate to be able to see the National Geographic photo exhibition as well.
  • Current exhibition on the 50 greatest National Geographic photos of all time. Fantastic.
