We've visited a number of times over the past 35 years and seen numerous changes. This won't stop us returning. apart from the exceptional collection of displays from decades past we were fortunate to have the opportunity to see how the Victoria trams were being restored. The aviation building is certainly an eye opener, all in all a great way to spend a day. Thanks for the people involved in giving this opportunity.

I adore coming here, from riding the tram from one campus to the other, to getting to print my own stuff on an old printing press. Great fun and interesting

Take your own picnic and head across to Western Springs by the lake to tickle eels rather than eat here - tis s shame as the place is really interesting - another Auckland asset.
