The best of Banks Peninsula! Enjoy a harbour cruise with Hector dolphins, a nature safari with wild penguins and experience the serenity of tame, friendly Alpacas. Finish off the day with a wine tasting at the very special French Peak vineyard.

A must if in Akaroa. Really well presented displays and a great informative short presentation of early history of Akaroa in the old court house.

Have been to Akaroa many times, but never thought to stop by here until one rainy day!(and its free) The museum is very modern and a lot bigger than I expected with lots of interactive displays and a lot of great display pieces which really brings the history to life. I liked this better than Canterbury Museum so full credit to the staff who put this all together!

Bigger than it looks at the front with the old court house and original cottage part of the site. There are four galleries which have some fascinating exhibits well displayed. It is not as stuffed full as some museums I have seen, but this gives you more chance to focus on what really interests you. Free entry and friendly staff. Excellent place which explains the French influence seen in the town amongst other things.
