  • Brilliant! Great layout, the Da Vinci exhibition is amazing but so are the permanent fixtures. So good that it's right in the CBD, well worth a visit.
  • 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
  • The lobby in the front is very cool and inviting. A bit to look at. A good small museum.
  • Great little museum, some of the exhibits were interactive with touch screen displays which I really enjoyed
  • Very interesting. Free for Nelson and Tasman residents.
