The museum is quite good though small and can be found at the end of Worcester Boulevard - just follow the tram tracks toward Hagley Park. Entry is free and among the main exhibits is a 19th Century street, Egpytian Mummy, Antarctic display, (a good intro before going out to the International Antarctic Centre near the Airport), Natural History Discovery Centre and excellent Maori section.

The museum is about to begin redevelopment with completion expected in late this year (2006).
