“an eclectic museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

This museum is right on the fabulous Wellington waterfront .. pop in and see what's on.. I find something new each time I'm there. Wonderful old heritage building too - this whole area is a place to chill out and see wellingtonians doing the same.

“Great little Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

Although pretty small compared to Te Papa, it is a veritable treasure trove of interesting facets and facts of early Wellington. Not to be missed I reckon.
