No visit to Wellington would be complete without a visit to Te Papa or the Museum of New Zealand.  There are excellent exhibitions on history, the Maori, Kiwi inventions and some interactive stuff and rides.

Matt tried some virtual surfing!

Colleen watched on.

We participated in an interactive virtual movie!

 

Kiwi's being the practical people that they are, manage to come up with some interesting inventions.  Use of the overabundant corrugated aluminum is an example.  Someone used this stuff to build a car!  Much more durable then the thin metals used in North America!
