This is an afternoon travel option, which did not disappoint us. My son said this is one of the best museums he has ever seen! The information knowledge is displayed in various ways, and there are many interactive links. My son was disappointed that he was not allowed to take more photos, but he could understand the reason. He likes those medals and he can use the computer to find out more information about the medals. He also likes this way. It is a good way to end this visit at a small cafe.
Located in Torpedo bay (Torpedo Bay) in Auckland, not far from Mount Victoria, the Royal New Zealand Navy often organizes official events there, and it is very close to Davenport, New Zealand's largest military port. Although not large, it has rich content and collections. Staff will provide free explanations.
The museum is a bit away from the pier, and the walking distance is about 2 kilometers. Apart from absorbing fresh air, you can also exercise along the way. It's free to enter, but you can't take pictures inside. The exhibition hall is small, mainly to show the history of the New Zealand Navy, and the daily life on board is also introduced.
The place is not big, but the collection inside is very rich. If you have time, you can come and have a look.
Tickets are a bit expensive, and those who are interested in maritime affairs are worth seeing. You can learn about the history of navigation, and those who like maritime affairs in the great nautical era will definitely like it. There are many boats to watch. It is a good choice to take your children. The museum is located in the Viaduct Harbour and has a modern appearance.
