“Worth a Visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013

A beautiful museum & the Maori presentation is worth viewing. Additionally, the attractive gift shop had a book I'd been searching for, & the cafe has very good food.

“So much to see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

We walked to the museum from Grafton Station, an easy pretty walk through the Domain. We spent a few hours here and could have easily spend a whole day. There is so much to see, great variety of exhibits and a lovely café to keep you going. Most impressive and moving was the WWII exhibits, especially the Holocaust room. Definitely recommended.

“Great place to visit.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

Spent an afternoon exploring the museum and war memorial. Started by attending the Maori cultural show, this went for about 30 minutes but was very well worth attending. Starting with their welcome song through the use of weapons and finishing with a hair raising haka. After this we could have followed a tour through the museum but chose to wander as we wished. Finishing several hours later with a drink from the cafe before heading to the shop. The high light would have been the Maori songs and dance.
