“Don't skip the video”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

A small but interesting museum that is slowly recovering after the earthquake damage. Best bit is the short but interesting video on the history of the Akaroa area. Don't skip it!!

“Interesting Museum”

This town reminds you have a small French town. The houses were French period houses and the streets were very quaint.

“More than it appears!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We nearly didn't tour the Akaroa Museum as at first it didn't appear to be anything but a single room with a few photos, however $5 was cheap, so we considered it a donation. We were very pleasantly surprised to be directed to the building next door (old Court House) and it contained a wealth of interesting information. We spent over an hour here and certainly got our money's worth.
