The museum in Napier is well worth a visit. You can learn about Maori history and culture as well as more recent events like the 1931 earthquake and the rebuilding of Napier and Hastings in the Art Deco style. It's not a big museum but has some interesting stuff.

Point of Interest
“Our local! 10 minutes walk away. Casual lunchtime dining and great wine. A lot of the grapes are grown locally - they even have a vineyard at the end of our road producing award winning Syrah. Not normally open in the evenings but in summer check out their casual Fridays when they open at night - there's usually a street food style menu, wine specials and live music. A great place meet locals over a glass to two. Or you could just stop by and taste/purchase wine at the friendly cellar door. Price level $$”
