“French history”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

If you are interested in history don't miss the video at this museum.
The only French building left in town is currently closed due to eathquake repairs needed - but you can peek in the windows. Other than a room of Maori history of the area and the video, there's not much else, but it's not expensive to enter.

“Don't skip the video”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

A small but interesting museum that is slowly recovering after the earthquake damage. Best bit is the short but interesting video on the history of the Akaroa area. Don't skip it!!

This town reminds you have a small French town. The houses were French period houses and the streets were very quaint.
