Fodor's Review

The focus of historic interest is the Akaroa Museum, which has a display of Māori pounamu (greenstone) as well as alternating exhibits on the area's multicultural past. The peninsula supported a significant Māori population and the collections and displays tell some of the exciting stories of Kai Tahu, the people of the land. The building is being strengthened for earthquakes but the museum is still open. The Old Courthouse and Langlois-Eteveneaux House, the two-room cottage of an early French settler, are also part of the museum.
