We always take our guests to Te Papa, and they LOVE it. You can seriously spend hours at this museum and learn SO MUCH about New Zealand from Earthquakes to Maori to The war. Plus, they have a great gift shop with classy and interesting books and jewelry. My kids love this place and they have a great kids area for learning and classes. Great for tourists and locals.
I love coming here with my kids. Love the kids learning area and I absolutely love the storyplace. $2 and the kids get 45 minutes of fun based around a theme.
Such a fun little playground area for the under 5s.
I think outside is fantastic and adds another element to the museum.
The cafe is great and offers a range of decent food and drinks.
The car parking is fantastic and a great price per hour which makes it affordable to stay out for the day!
Really great place to take the family and have an exploration day with lots of free activities. My kids really enjoyed the interactive zone and we also enjoyed the Anzac display when it was there. You may need more than a day to really enjoy and explore and we will definitely return when we are in Wellington next time.
Went with my lady friends on a trip to Wellington had a lovely time visiting the exhibitions on offer and the view from the rooftop terrace over the Wellington Harbour was amazing can you believe entry to this wonderful place was free I must see for everyone visiting Wellington
Enjoy the exhibition on the Gallipolis. Great experience seeing what was happening. Still love the main exhibit, the sad part was the Maori part was closed due to a function. I was hoping to see that part as I haven’t been to there since 2007. Very nice museum must visit if you are in Wellington.
Great museum defiantly need more than one day to have a proper look around. Even better that its free. Love the Earthquake house it is so much fun!! Just so much to see and learn. Nice location next to the water front. Lots of parking but parking can be quite expensive.
