Wellington’s waterfront is the ideal place to bring the family, offering a playground, cafes, space to run around and Wellington’s own treasure hunt inside Wellington Museum, a free Museum close to Lambton Quay. From the outside the Museum is the original Bond Store or Maritime Museum, on the inside it is filled with quirky and curious treasures that will excite and intrigue.
Watch a miniature train, a time machine, see lions from Wellington Zoo, old phone systems, electrical currents, replica Crown Jewels, and the stories of Wellington across four floors. This is a great place to visit for a short time regularly or spend hours exploring. A little bit of local knowledge – the Museum shop is one of the best tourist shops in town.
