I would rate this place as a must, if you wish to learn more about Maori culture and the Treaty of Waitangi. It has a great museum and a video reenactment of the treaty signing by some 40 Chiefs is absolutely a treat, with humour in the end.
Guided tours leave every hour and are included in the entry fee and are really worthwhile as the Guides are very knowledgeable and a great sense of humour. Part of the tour is a cultural performance with a formal greeting of your "tribe". Do you want to be Chief for a short time? The opportunity is there.
