An arduous postquake revamp has rewarded Akaroa with one of the smartest regional museums in the land. Learn about the various phases of the peninsula's settlement and its fascinating natural and industrial history, and hear stories of old characters including Pompey the penguin. A 20-minute film fills in some gaps while several adjacent historic buildings keep it real. Note the donation box.
