Take a cultural break and visit the Museum of Wellington
Located in the Bond Store, an 1892 heritage building designed by leading architect Frederick de Jersey Clere, this museum makes for an interesting morning to soak up the history of Wellington. Learn about the early settlers, trading and community life via a series of exhibitions and displays. Set over four floors, the museum takes some time to explore, but it's an education you'll be pleased with.
