Very informative telling the story of the Maori from long ago to present day. Wood carvers and weavers are there showing their skills. There is a concert of Maori songs. You can walk a path to see geysers hot springs and hot mud pools. A must see sight.

Nice winding road to get to the summit...even saw a sheep with her lamb at the summit.....they are good climbers. The view was great, even though a bit overcast.
