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, as well as a sub-Antarctic exhibit. 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.
