I have been here a few times and this year went twice and liked the 80's ad 90's look and living in NZ which was awesome to see, the second time went with a friend. The museum is free to visit can do a donation and enjoy spending time you should keep round three hours or more spare s a lot to see and cafe can be bit pricey.
Loved visiting this place as a kid and enjoy taking my own kid now that it has had a facelift. Lots of fun exhibits like the bus you can sit in, the tram and seeing the big train in the foyer. Only negative is the price of food and drink in the cafe, quite expensive.
A wealth of early history in New Zealand, all presented in a stylish & modern setting. Full of interactive displays that can entertain and enthral all ages. I love the technology & transport exhibitions the most. Kids will love the trams and zebra bus. A must for visitors and locals alike. They did such a fantastic job during the modernization that I actually enjoyed this more than my visit to Te Papa.
An essential "rainy-day-Dunedin-outing" location on a budget (free). Highlights for the kids are Josephine, the tiger trolley bus and the old cable cars. The cafe is good and serves a good flat white. Pixie town is an annual Christmas treat.
