  • Is a small museum for exhibits art pieces of cute animals, and quite good. Interesting work and exhibited the old canoes of the Maori, struggled with it, was flowed in the video. Also in the past for camping Caravan is very interesting. Securely check the sign of the given time is up at the parking lot near the Museum. Should we pay the fine over time.
