    What to Expect
    Te Papa Tongarewa is Wellington’s distinctive cultural history museum, a must-see attraction located on the waterfront in the city center. Enhance your visit with an introductory 1-hour guided tour, led by a knowledgeable expert who provides an orientation to the museum's collections.
    Choose from several tour times throughout the day and make your way to the contemporary museum housed in a state-of-the-art building. You’ll meander through intriguing art and design galleries; learn the history of Maori and other Pacific cultures that came into contact with Captain Cook; view photography and natural science displays such as the giant squid; and come face to face with high-tech interactive exhibits. 
    Use your admission ticket to browse the museum further on your own. Stay as long as you like; one can easily spend several hours delving into the exhibitions, gift shop and on-site cafes.
