This is the best museum I have been to. The models are so life like, based on real people. The displays are great and many are walk through so you can really get into the history.
This place is awesome. Even my museum wary wife enjoyed it for 3 hours. I went back on the next day to finish off. You could easily fill a day here.
First class, a must see. I must admit I had by passed this museum on previous visits because I travelled from Paihia to Auckland. Both times and did not think I could spare time for a Kauri museum! How wrong I was.

Me & my partner both enjoyed this museum a lot, different parts interested both of us. The displays had enough information but not so it was overloading, the gum display was beautiful and I really enjoyed learning about the way they used to log the tree's. I would recommend this museum to anyone, it is an important part of NZ...

Unsure at the start but what a surprise. Loads of info and photos of the history felling, carving, uses of kauri wood and gum. Well worth the money and so very informative. Pleasant staff. Would be even better if raining as it could easily stretch into several hours and a cafe stop. Wheelchair accessible.
This is a wonderful museum with absolutely superb layout of Kauri trees and associated history. You will see and touch ancient Kauri wood going back as far as 30 million years and younger trees just a few thousand years old. The design of this museum is outstanding.... a must visit if you are in Northland and near the Kauri coast.
