We went to the library, to the McNab Room especially, to gather genealogy information. Malcolm was the man who helped us extensively by gathering information that we would have found hard/impossible to get elsewhere.

One of Dunedin's great attractions, a collection of NZ's most significant artworks . Literary works of national and international significance, and a dedicated and expert staff who care. Definitely worth a visit, and then many more

Was taken on a tour, and what an amazing place. It has millions [if not zillions] of articles for show and for research.
