  • The most amazing museum in New Zealand, we spent a lot of time with the kids and the gemstone area. Which is really targeted to any young person or young at heart or anyone that's interested in New Zealand precious stones. Aswell I I loved the interactive video at the beginning, I felt like I had gone back in time to be fair and created a great story for me to teach my children about the history of New Zealand as this is one of the earliest settlements in terms of Europeans to New Zealand. It is a must if you go to Southland
  • if u have nothing else to on a rainy day its ok. but noooo comparison to the museum in Wellington. in Wellington its just a donation. here it was 8$.
  • Nice little museum with a movie intro. Entrance fee is fair. Helpful and welcoming staff. Nice view of the bay from the shop area.
  • Top job. One of the best, if not the best, installations ever. This is on a par with Te Papa. Awesome. Give yourself a good two hours though. We only had an and it was a bit of a rush.
  • Great local museum. Rich in history of the area.
