Educational places for kids in New Zealand

    "I love going back in time with each visit to MOTAT. It’s the perfect place to take the family for both fun and learning. From groping your way through textile tunnels to chugging along the tram track in a vintage carriage, there is something for everyone. I always come away having learnt something new!"

    Auckland Zoo

    "What is not to love about the Zoo? Even those of us who would prefer the animals lived in their natural environment, we have to admit the Auckland Zoo has created enclosures as similar as possible to their natural home, and provide for all their needs. Watch the elephants bathing, talk to the parrots, hug a lion. No, don’t do that one. Educate the family on the vast array of God’s creatures and have a picnic amongst the wildlife."

    "It is quite a surreal experience to be surrounded by hundreds of butterflies, flying around and even landing on you! The rainbow-coloured array of these beautiful winged creatures is just serene. But it’s not just about butterflies. There are other critters you can pat and feed, and even an alligator to hold! Well worth a visit with all the family."

    "This is a fascinating place to take the kids. With a petting zoo of farm animals to pat, feed and ride, a train and a mini rollercoaster to enjoy, and gold to be panned for, there is still enough time to spend admiring the incredible array of crystals in the shop - after a visit underground down the elevator! A wonderful combination of fun and learning!"

    "Not just all about war - although there is something humbling about looking at uniforms worn by people who fought and died for our country - the Museum houses a fascinating display of relics and pieces of history drawn together to teach us about life. Visit the 1800’s on the top floor. Count how many bugs are in the critter display. Learn about volcanoes and hold on to your seat in the earthquake room!"
