We saw many really cool things in New Zealand, and this was one of my favorites (and one that I least expected). We had to kill some time before catching the ferry to Wellington and stumbled onto this museum. I think we spent 1-2 hours (because I'm the kind of person that has to read all the things), but you could get a sense of it in less time. The visitors' center is informative, and getting to walk around and in the ship is a pretty special experience. Another review noted that it is not good for people with limited mobility, which I would concur with but fortunately was not an issue for us. I don't remember what the fee was, but it wasn't astronomical. Any qualms I had about the fee were quickly dispersed given the quality and significance of the experience.
