Museums of New Zealand - back

See how New Zealanders lived, worked and played in the past. Visit the museums of New Zealand, in towns large and small.

Museums range from the large and impecably presented, to those whose collection policy is, "we'll take it if we've got room", But there is usually enthusiasm behind a museum, after all why is it there? And the smallest museum can have an exquisite collection - the product of someone's passion.

A number of 'Technology' sites are also listed as Museums, but make sure you look under both categories to ensure you find all that is of interest.

Galleries and Museums also overlap sometimes, particularly if they are of the Municipal variety, so you may find examples of one listed under the other.
