What people are saying about Auckland Museum - Tāmaki Paenga Hira
We thoroughly enjoyed the museum, but don't let it's name fool you - the museum does have an exhibit that showcases New Zealand's participation in WWII, but it also features a large natural history section and an early peoples exhibit. I particularly enjoyed the natural history exhibit as the knowledge I gained helped me during the rest of our 12-day trip. I was even able to answer some of our guide's questions during our excursion down into the Waitomo glowworm caves :)
The bus was supposed to pick us up from the hotel we were staying in, but after a phone call to the office, it was clear this wasn't going to happen. Nobody seemed to know what I was talking about, so some mis-information was given about pick up. Nevertheless, we walked to the nearest "stop" and all was good.
Loved the singing and playing and the chants and movements were spellbinding. We were given a great welcome and the performers clearly loved what they were doing. Highly recommended.
We enjoyed seeing all of the sights and stopped at the Auckland Zoo for most of the day. The drivers were really friendly and provided a great commentary along the way.
It should have routed away from busy downtown streets as we wasted for about 10-15 minutes traffic delay!
