Te Papa Tongarewa-The Museum of New Zealand

Affectionately known as Te Papa, New Zealand’s national museum is a monolithic homage to the country’s history and culture. Much of the museum is dedicated to the Māori, showing New Zealand’s indigenous peoples’ way of life. Live performances and authentic food enhance the experience even further. You can wander the massive five-story building on your own or take a guided tour.
