Fodor's Review

Galleries in an 1877 building are a throwback to Victorian times. The museum's first curator was a zoologist, and many of the original animals collected from 1868 are still on display in "Animal Attic," a restored, magnificent skylighted gallery. "Southern Land, Southern People" explores the cultural heritage of this region, and other galleries focus on Māori and Pacific Island artifacts, animal and insect specimens, and nautical items, including ship models and a whale skeleton. "The Tropical Forest" re-creates a jungle, complete with live butterflies and other tropical creatures.
