My husband and I stumbled upon the pre-fab exhibit on the coastal walkway and it prompted us to take in the rest of the exhibit at the museum. Nice smallish gift shop in the Info site there but found some good souvenirs at reasonal prices

We are Taranaki residents and called in for directions. What a joy the lady who served us was!! She was interested in us, our stay and had great advice. We learnt of several locations new to us which were excellent. This lady is an asset to New Plymouth, I wish I had taken her name but she was working on the morning of Sunday 6th January 2013. Go see her I am sure you will learn something from her!!!

The displays all used good modern techniques to present information. Of particular interest to me are the history of New Plymouth settlers and also the oil & gas industry. All well presented. The meeter and greeter could have been a bit more helpful to someone visiting for the first time.
