Te Pupuri Taonga O Te Tai Ao (Nelson Provincial Museum) Review
Nelson's regional museum occupies part of the original site of New Zealand's first museum. It explores the early settlement of the town, its development as an early port, the original Māori inhabitants, and other events that shaped the region. Exhibits include an outstanding collection of Māori musical instruments, plus a number of artifacts relating to the so-called Maungatapu murders, grisly goldfields killings committed near Nelson in 1866. The Town Warp is a multimedia wander through the early central-city streets, highlighting local personalities such as Ann Bird the Butcher (a hard-as-nails woman who was one of the town's first European settlers).
