“This is a must see”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

This DOC/Visitor center was one of the best we visited in New Zealand. The exhibits are so informative and the staff very helpful.

Make sure you stop in when you are in Aoraki Village.

“A must, no matter what the weather”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

This would be a great place to while away some bad weather but even on a perfect fine day set aside some time to appreciate a great combination of history, geology, mountaineering and wildlife.
The views are stunning; the facility is well laid out and full of fascinating displays and photos and the staff are very helpful and informative.
