Fodor's Review

The Southland Museum and Art Gallery contains the largest public display of live tuatara, New Zealand's extremely rare and ancient lizards. The museum has also established a successful captive-breeding program for the creatures. It's usually easy to spot these minidinosaurs, but they do a successful job of hiding themselves if it gets too noisy. Southland also contains fine displays of Māori and settler artifacts. The gallery has both older and modern New Zealand

art on permanent display as well as temporary exhibits. It's in Queens Park, with an on-site café and information center.
