Wellington Museum celebrates the people and the events that have shaped the character and soul of the Capital City of New Zealand and it’s region. Visitors are transported to the 1800s, and then explore the city’s metamorphosis. The Ngā Heke exhibition showcases prized taonga, Te Whanganui a Tara (The Great Harbour of Tara), and contemporary work from Māori artists and poets.
Reach the top floor and you’ll be greeted by the delightfully bizarre Attic, which embraces the more peculiar side of Wellington’s history. Explore, listen, and even time travel.
The Museum is located at the heart of Wellington’s waterfront. It is free and one of the must-dos while in the world’s coolest little capital.
