What you need to know

It's not your typical wax museum, Tawhiti Museum creatures scenes where figurines are actively participating in a period of New Zealand's history, both European and Maori alike. These depictions work to add a sense of life to the exhibition and put various scenes and daily routines of the past into better context.

All of the displays have been created on-site, incorporating techniques that involve wax moulds and casting to help give them their lifelike qualities – and these, in turn are set amongst dioramas with backdrops of a variety of sceneries that look just as realistic as the figures standing amongst them. The scenes on display are very well curated, with plaques outlining their historic relevance and making it easier for those visiting from abroad to gain a sense of their significance to New Zealand's history.

The Tawhiti Museum can be reached in just under an hour's drive from the major township of New Plymouth, and given the variety and quality of its contents, could easily be the ideal spot to spend up to half a day in the Taranaki region. Part museum, part ride, part theme park and part history lesson, the Tawhiti Museum is one of the most unique attractions in the country and well worth the price of admission both for those with and without children.
