Wellington's stories

1 day | $

The Wellington Museum is the home of Wellington’s stories. Can you spot the rats and the cats (there are more than one of each!)?

Explore the atmosphere and the smells of the old Bond Store; push, pull and pose behind a ship’s wheel in Jack’s Boathouse; cram into the tiny Captain’s Cabin; check out the amazing model of the capsizing Wahine; and pat Paddy the Wanderer’s nose.

After exploring Wellington Museum, take a ride on the historic Cable Car and enjoy lunch in the Botanic Garden. Next up, visit Cable Car Museum to discover the history of this iconic Wellington attraction that's over 100 years old! 

If you need to let off some steam, check out our list of Top 10 Playgrounds for the kids to have a run around.
