I actually wasn't at the Museum for culture as such. It was a work related evening, with a presentation by the tour company Tauck. Most impressive by the way. However because I was early, I had time to look at a current art exhibition focusing on the Waikato region here in NZ. There were paintings from the early 1900s and it actually was amazing to compare art depicting local scenery and towns, from a then and now perspective.
So that was my evening. A mix of culture and a mix of education.
