“Beautiful building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2013

Beautiful building with an interesting and varied history. Cover price was a bit steep. The tour guide was a bit long winded and didn't always have her facts correct. we ended up bailing after 1 1/2 hours cause it was to long and we had to be somewhere else. Would of been good if quicker and cheaper

“Well worth the time and $$”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

This museum has the history of the building, to Maori history and culture and local artist works on display. Well worth the admission price. Give yourself a couple of hours.

“Allow time to enjoy this museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

We really enjoyed our visit but simply didn't have enough time to see everything. The exhibition about earthquakes was fascinating and the marble statues in the bathhouse part are well worth a closer look. The staff on the front desk were very friendly and helpful.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

We had a one hour tour of the bath house and Maori history side of the museum. Even being a New Zealander I found it interesting and learnt new historial facts. Guide Jill was friendly and happy to answer any questions as we walked along. We had to go unfortunetly though I will be back to enjoy some more next time we are in town
