Banksy exhibition at the Museum was great. (Free as well). The whole museum is very interesting, with lots of NZ/Maori information and exhibits as well as other various things such as Asian exhibits and costumes. The Museum has been overhauled since I was a child and used to visit with school - it was very impressive.
