List of New Zealand museums

Te Hikoi in Riverton

New Zealand is better known for its scenery than for its museums, but the Kiwis have a lot to offer in this respect. Not just an alternative for rainy days, there's a lot to learn and great things to see.

A bit of advance planning is useful because it pays to make some time to include a visit into what is often a packed daily programme.

The ticket prices are usually very low in comparison to overseas and admission to regional museums is often free.

The following museum lists are in no way complete, but we have mentioned only those museums which we hope you will find interesting enough to visit during a short overseas trip - the most interesting museums are written in bold at the top of the lists. Many museums would of course fit into more than one category.
