Fodor's Expert Review Old Government Buildings

Wellington Educational Institution

The largest wooden structure in New Zealand is now home to Victoria University's law faculty. Constructed in 1876, the original plans called for concrete and timber construction. Due to the high price of concrete at the time, plans were modified and it was ultimately fashioned entirely from timber, including a considerable amount of native kauri. Inside are historic exhibits and an information center, but it's the exterior that most captivates visitors.
