This is a lovely museum. It has a wide range of exhibits. I've visited many times, and always see something new and interesting each time. The location is excellent, as there are many other attractions nearby, including shuttle buses to attractions that are further afield. They have a discovery room for children, which is filled with lots of hands-on exhibits, and great fun for the younger ones. There is also a cafe, which is very child friendly.
Came for a visit during the school holidays. On the first day we had a good look around the AirNZ exhibition and the Antarctic Exhibitions. Came back the following day and had a further look around the museum at the Paua house and the Natural History Exhibits. Well worth it. Only downside is that parking nearby wasn't easy.
Great place for a visit for families and tourists. Only a gold coin donation if you would like otherwise it is free to go. Lots of great exhibition to see and they have special themes all the time. Worth going and also its lovely to visit the botanic gardens which is just right beside it.
