Wellington Things to Do: 197 reviews and 338 photos
This fabulous small museum is located in an historic building at Queen’s Wharf. It displays Wellington’s social history and maritime past, with videos, holographs, models and relics. It has the best information and displays about the Wahine disaster, New Zealand’s best known maritime tragedy. 53 people lost their lives on 10 April 1968 when the Wahine ferry sank in Wellington Harbour in a horrible storm.
More info about this disaster in my tip about Frank Kitts Park.
Open daily 10am – 5pm
