Well worth the money. Guided tour takes about 50 mins, kapa haka 30 mins and for me, visits to both the Waitangi museum and Te Rau Aroha museum took about 2 hours. I know a fair bit about the treaty yet still learned something from the tour. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and patient. The kapa haka performance was very entertaining yet polished. Had lunch at the cafe there - tasty food at reasonable prices. You won’t regret this experience.

We had a guided tour with Mr Busby he was very knowledgeable had a lively relatable non threatening delivery style. The museum had a great flow very interesting held our attention and delivered historic information that was easy to understand for adults and children.

Well worth the experience. Would highly recommend. Staff are very helpful and friendly and tour guides are amazing with all their knowledge. Cultural performance is a must see!

Had a great time, learnt so much, guides and facilities were excellent. Very different from when I was there 18 years ago. A must do, for any Kiwi

Was definitely worth the $. Beautiful place to visit.
