    Favorite thing: Go to Te Papa Museum. Opened in 1998, built on a site the size of 3 rugby fields (that's kiwi for you!), it has a total floor area of 36,000 square metres. Te Papa is the national museum of NZ, with many amazing New Zealand and International exhibits. Entry is free, except for special exhibitions. NZ Exhibitions include: Te Marae - the vibrancy of Maori culture brought close in this living marae ... The Time-Warp - state-of-the art-time travel and virtual reality thrills, from the prehistoric to the future; from sheep-shearing to bungy-jumping ... Bush City - a place for time out or high adventure, in this living, growing, changing outdoor exhibition of the wonders of our natural world. . . Discovery Centres - hands-on, interactive spaces where you can try weaving, search the collections, peer down microscopes ...
    Allocate at least 1/2 a day to wander around the Museum. website: Te Papa.

    Favorite thing: Visit the Museum - Te Papa: Learn about NZ as well as enjoy the cafes and restaurant and its right in the city.

    Fondest memory: Wellington is so easy - everything is within walking distance in the city including lots of restaurants, cafes, pubs and a healthy art industry. Love the bush - lots of walks close by.

    Fondest memory: I was received by Glen and his family in his home for 2 days. They show me a Kiwi family life as well as their social live which is a valuable memory for me. I miss the family, especially the lovely children.
