Te Papa Museum
The Te Papa Museum in Wellington is an inspiring place. I usually avoid museums but this one really captured my interest for quite a few hours.
The image above is one of the sections of the map of NZ (I assume from satellite photos) which we spent ages walking over and following where we had been. The detail was amazing and the variety of landscapes incredible.
There was also a Colour exhibition based around fashion with a different display for each colour. I loved the fact that the swimming costumes were enormous - even too big for me!
One of their prized exhibitions is the Giant Squid caught a few years ago. Even bigger than Peter.
