Visited this museum on a recent visit to Devonport. Very well presented with informative displays. Only takes 30 mins or so to go through.

Agree with all the previous reviews. The only thing I would add is that it would have been interesting to have some information about the present day activities of the New Zealand Navy which is based just along the coast.

This is an outstanding museum. The exhibits are very impressive, and well chosen to detail the history of a remarkable service. Considering the relatively small population and age of New Zealand as a nation, it is fascinating to see how much naval history has been made by its inhabitants. While the museum is not great in size, it contains so much of value to naval historians and enthusiasts that its impact is immense. Additionally, the staff are remarkably kind and helpful. If one has any interest in the history of New Zealand and its Navy, than a visit to this museum is a must.

Great location, lovely new playground, food and coffee not bad. I usually choose to go there with visitors from out of town. I had my first brunch there last week and we all agreed that the food, whilst not special, was good. Great ambience because it's on the waterfront.

My other half used to be in the Royal Navy so this was a walk down memory lane for him. I still found it well laid out and very interesting. The staff were friendly and helpful, lovely cafe with a view to die for and spotlessly clean. It was also free!
