You must go visit Te Papa when you are in town. Our highlight was the Gallipoli exhibition. The detail of the exhibits is truely amazing and a very moving historical rendition of the events. Weta Workshops did an amazing job on the figurines.

Underwhelming, missing the exciting activities of my childhood. The exhibitions are largely focused on education about the environment and seem to come from a negative view point

Te Papa is reputed to have masses of art and items stored in various places, it's a shame they don't bring some out more often. What is on display seems to have been there forever, I've been several times over the years and nothing much changes

We wanted to organise a longer parking limit than is officially permitted, so rolled up to Te Papa this morning. Upon entering, we met the customer service/advisor Paul, who was welcoming and friendly and in no time had it all sorted for us. Highly impressed.

Te Papa is great to visit for an hour, an afternoon or a day. The Gallipoli exhibit was moving but amazing with lifelike giant people, details of their stories, and lots of interactive bits.

Visited the museum about 6 years ago and decided to visit again to see what's new. Walked around the museum, nothing has changed. The ANZAC display is still there and has not changed for 6 or 7 years. Some of the floors were empty with nothing on display. There was one new area on the second or third floor for immigration into NZ but was disappointing. I do not recommend going if you have been before, but great for first time visitors.

Visited arou d 15 years ago not long after opened. Great to come back again whilst recent Wellington visit. Predominately wanted to do the Gallopoli display, as have visisted Gallopoli , Ecebat & Cannakale back in 2009. Was great to get another perspective having spent two nights freedom camping at Anzac cove in the off season. Was amazing to visit Lone Pine and Chunuk Bair where the Anzacs had been. Really did bring home the senselessness of war. First rate display - was very informative. well worth the visit, did also visit some of the other displays.
