Auckland Museum, Auckland, New Zealand

We are in Auckland with a free morning. The Auckland Museum has a Maori performance at 11:00 AM and, although we had already seen one, I wanted to see another one. We use The Link bus, which stops a ten minute walk from the Museum.

We arrived just in time for the performance, which was excellent, the best we've seen so far. Afterwards, we walked around their display of Maori artifacts. They have a fantastic display, including things like a whaka (canoe) and Marae (holy meeting house). We spend more time here than we thought we would, as it was most impressive. If you are interested in Maori art and history, plan on spending a few hours at this museum.
