It’s a small but good museum, each floor dedicted to an aspect of NZ culture. Good galleries about millitary history (WWI and WWII) and maori culture. Gallerie dedicated to children. Worth a visit

Great place to start if you want to find out about New Zealand history. It has a nice cafe in the atrium and it also has accessible archives.

Lots of different sections with some outstanding exhibits. Free parking for 2 hours which isn't really long enough

I visited the museum to understand more about NZ. I joined a performance tour (30 min where you watch a Maori performance) and a highlighted tour (1 hour, by a volunteered guide).
