A wonderful museum. Very informative displays with lots of history. Interesting presentations on how New Zealand became populated. Interesting displays about the Moa, the extinct, flightless bird. Great place for adults and children

“Great Musuem with Butterflies”
Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

Very interesting museum about New Zealand and loads of Maori carvings and artifacts. Could gave spent longer here but the teenage part of the group had other ideas!

An interesting annex is the Discovery World Tropical Forest which is full of colourful butterflies and even a waterfall. There is an entrance fee but we all considered it worthwhile. After all entrance to the museum is free. There is also a nice cafe here. Well worth a visit when in Dunedin.

“Wonderful Place to Visit”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

We stopped by this museum for a quick look and ended up touring the whole museum for hours. It gives so much information on how the area was settled all the way to modern days. One of the best museums we went to in NZ!
