Te Manawa, Museum of Art, Science and History

This free museum is great for kids. There’s a play area called Tamariki, which has a kid-sized kitchen, building wall, treehouse, reading nook (with books in both English and Te Reo), a Westpac Rescue Helicopter and Beca electric car. In the outdoor play space there is a dino dig – a sand pit with “fossils” buried underneath. The museum “works beyond boundaries”, celebrating diversity, courage and curiosity, shaping the future as well as remembering the past (and, how great is this museum – in the school holidays there is a regular Drag Queen Storytime). The adult exhibitions are well worth a look, often thought provoking and boundary pushing.
