Owner description: Characterized by its formal gardens, this park is a great place to relax just minutes away from the city center.

This small museum is a manageable size but gives the tourist an overview of the culture of the 'early settlers" the arrival of the European discoverers and the growth into the country it has become today.

The museum has a great exhibit on Maori and Polynesian artifacts and a lots of hands on exhibits. There is a great view of Auckland outside the museum. The grounds are lovey and the green house are worht a visit

The domain is a huge park filled with ancient trees; a fern collection, the plant cvarety in the Wintergarden and the serenity of the place make it special. From the entrance to the War Museum, there are lovely views over the gulf and the city.

beware this "park" is more sports field than formal park. it does contain a modest area for the Winter garden, Band Stand, ponds, paths, specimen trees and of course the museum.

It hosts a multitude of sports not least a group of cricket games for children on a Sat. Morning! In the week day time it is a quiet place to chill under a tree!

If you are in the vicinity do walk thru' it to get to, say, Parnell but it is not, in my opinion, an outstanding tourist attraction!
