Great tour of history of NZ from the Declaration of Independence to the Treaty of Waitangi and Kate Shepherd's petition on display. Awesome
This was an excellent exhibit the ability to interact to the extent provided really takes this out past all others. If possible I would give it a 10 rating. I am sorry but I do not have any photos. But encourage people visiting NZ and ALL NEW ZEALANDERS to visit this wonderfull exhibit of our history.
