I really enjoyed our visit to the Maritime Museum, the people are very welcomeing and warm,i left there knowing more and my culture and how we came to become aotearoa, and how boats are a very big part of how my people travelled in the old days ..
Thank you Maritime Museum
Basically a bunch of rusty old boats and buoys which you pay 12 bucks to see. Not historical boats just dingys & scowls. If you like to see old anchors covered in barnicles then well this is your lucky day. You can buy stamps in the gift area though so not all is lost.

must.Check times for tours. Only one a day.
