Fodor's Review

You can smell the burlap sacks, hear the gulls, and see the (mechanical) rats scuttling around in this refurbished 1892 bond store, now a museum that portrays the history of the original Māori tribes and the European settlers who arrived around 1840. Spread over four floors, the displays cover work, leisure, crime, and education in Wellington, telling stories of local life that will be of interest to visitors of all ages.
