I could live with this.

I'd even go so far as to tentatively think that it's a good idea for Wynyard Quarter, a satellite Te Papa . One of the worries I've had about the development down there, lovely as the idea of parks on the waterfront are, is that there's nothing down there to draw people to the area. And I'm sorry, but apartments and corporate headquarters won't do it - the waterfront should be for more than just lunchtime office workers and people wealthy enough to afford and apartment on it (I can't imagine apartments down there being cheap even if they do follow the classic Auckland apartment style of small and nasty). Given that so much of the national collection is stored, it'd be nice to have a bit more of it out and on display.
