Te Papa Tongarewa Museum
Wellington’s Te Papa Museum is globally renowned for its innovative displays and comprehensive collections. It’s a place that documents and celebrates Maori heritage, New Zealand nature, and various historical events. One of the best interactive displays at Te Papa is the Earthquake House — a simulation that gives visitors a real-life insight into the aftershocks that occurred during the 1987 Edgecumbe Earthquake. For children there are numerous opportunities to explore and learn, while even the most hardened museum-wary sceptic will find something to delight and appreciate.
