When we were there they had a photographic exhibition on which was absolutely superb. Didn't have time to visit the whole museum hence only 4 stars

We were visiting the area from the US and had a short stopover that we wanted to make the best use of our time. We spent a couple hours at the museum, but wish we had more time. It was a great place to learn about the culture and natural resources of the area. We did watch the Maori Cultural show which was very nice. The performers were very talented and entertaining. We drove around the outside of the museum and found quite a few open parking spots that were free. I don't know how the crowd compares to other times, but there were a lot of people and buses there, but it didn't appear that as many arrive by car.

With its prime position and its magnificent collections there is a lot to like - but it can get frightfully crowded, especially on wet winter days.

Although you have to pay to get in, as international visitors the museum gave us a good overview of everything New Zealand. The War museum is extremely good and as Brits we are extremely grateful for New Zealand's efforts in World War 1 and 2.

Loved this show! Great insight to the Moari Culture. Loved the Haka. The rest of the museum was great too. A little expensive but worth it for the history.
