Wellington is home to New Zealand’s national Museum, Te Papa Tongarewa, as well as many other fascinating cultural attractions.
Packed with national treasures, Wellington's museums tell the stories of New Zealand's past. Right on the waterfront, you'll find Te Papa Tongarewa, the most visited museum in Oceania. Here, six stories of exhibitions showcase aspects of the country's diverse art and visual culture.
A little further along the waterfront is the Museum of Wellington City and Sea, which is all about Wellington City's cultural history. Pataka, 15 minutes north of the CBD, celebrates New Zealand's multicultural history; specialising in showcasing Māori, Pacific Island, Asian and international contemporary art & culture.
If you're a movie buff you'll love Weta Cave, the Academy-Award winning company that brought The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies to life. There's also a number of small, quaint muesums on offer in and around the city centre.
