Fodor's Review

This museum re-creates a kāinga (unfortified fishing village) where local Māori lived in peaceful times. In times of war they took refuge in nearby Kororipo Pā. In the village are good reproductions of the chief Hongi Hika's house, the weapons store, and the family enclosure, as well as two original canoes dug up from local swamps and original hāngi stones which were heated by fire and used to cook traditional Māori feasts, found on-site. A "discoverers

garden" takes you on a winding path past indigenous herbs and other plants; information is posted describing the uses of each plant.
