A place for all the family that is well worth a visit. There is so much to see once you enter the new meets old art deco designed building. The sounds and ambiance at the beginning are magical and you learn so much about early NZ as you walk on and on and on. The cafe serves great hot chocolate and there is free WiFi. All sorts of lovely gift ideas in the shop too. Well worth a visit.
This is a great museum that hides it's opulence with a small-looking outside structure, but don't let this fool you. The museum starts off with a showcase of the history and establishment of Dunedin, and some models of the tools used by the Maori settlers. You then come through a remake of a ship used by the English settlers and lastly brings you through a showcase of old electronics and automobiles, with a remake as well of the tram installed in Dunedin in the past. Definitely worth going to for anyone of any age.
One of the the places you just have to go and explore for yourself. Iv been so many times and still find new things to see and do. A great way to learn about NZ History. Different exhibitions throughout the year.
My daughter loves this museum especially kids zone where she can dress up, play with toys or read books when she needs a rest. Little house with fire and old bus are also her favorite spots. A lot of interactive activities for her. Usually we spend at least 2-3 hours there.
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.
