When you stay Rydges, you stay local, and there’s nothing quite like a truly local experience.
While there’s so many amazing things in Wellington to see, it’s hard to go past a day of discovery at Te Papa Tongarewa, the museum of New Zealand. With 6 expansive floors showcasing art, history, taonga Māori, pacific culture and natural history as well as fabulously curated special exhibitions and events, it’s a Wellington must do!
