We arrived very early in the morning and while the building and coffee shop were open the exhibits were not. They did finally open about a half hour later. Despite its name, the center primarily focuses on the kiwi, the iconic, flightless, NZ bird that is almost extinct. While the exhibit in semi-darkness was interesting with a couple of kiwis to observe, it was somewhat underwhelming. We thought the center was overpriced for what it actually offered. But if it's kiwis that you're after, this is the place.
