This is probably the best Museum I have been to. It's the best way to spend a day with all sorts of things to see and do. Good for the kids as well

It's a while since I was here. I'm not a massive museum goer but this was a nice few hours seeing some NZ artifacts and history. The museum is on a high point above the city so provides nice views as well.

We did the package with the Maori cultural performance and guided tour. Our guide was outstanding and it was very informative and fun. The special exhibition of wildlife photography was really great as well.

The layout was a little confusing, but it was fun seeing what was around the corner. They have Maori artifacts and items of local historical interest and a "volcano experience" room.

You could stay entire day here! Like especially the simulation of volcano eruption in Auckland. Maori cultural show was good too. Overall - a good place for family to enjoy a day.
