An interesting small exhibition of the history of astronomy in the area, and astronomy in general.
You can see an old 9 inch refractor in the observatory - wonderful engineering! and the show in the small "planetarium" covers the major landmarks of the Space Race before moving on to the night sky over visible over Wellington.
You will enjoy the experience more if you already have a love of, or interest in, astronomy.
