Really good exhibits at the museum showcasing New Zealand history that we didn’t previously know. The most impressive part was the cultural performance including the haka at the end of it. Well worth paying the extra for it.

Hi there Robert, if it's a large group of people, we suggest booking in advance, but for small parties it should be fine to just show up on the day! If you have any other questions, feel free to fire them through!
