  • It's really worth a visit to admire the surprisingly beautiful carved Waka and other masterpieces of Maori art displayed in the central hall. The museum do not allow to take pictures. The museum is also the home of the "Moa Gallery", one of Biggest collection in the world of remain belonging to this Huge New Zealand extinct Bird.
  • Awesome. Kids really enjoyed the Moa's skull mystery. Definitely worth a visit if you've got a few hours to spare.
  • Museum not really big but pleasant. Some interesting Maori artefacts. A room is reserved for the kids : they have to collect evidences to find who stole the moa’s bone. Besides, if you want to see a lot of moa’s bones visit this museum. At the end you can dress you with costumes of the 19th century and take pictures : lot of fun!
  • Delightful surprising place
  • Brilliant classical NZ museum. Keep it that way. Do not "modernise" it.
