In a way it is like a library with lots and lots of information stored in the form of wooden carvings, weapons, photographs,and Maori artefacts.
It’s located in the Auckland Domain, a big park near the city. It’s purpose is to  educate all the people around the world on the history of New Zealand. Specifically the wars and people that lived in New Zealand.
