It's odd to realize you have absolutely no knowledge of a country's history. It's even odder when you're standing inside the country. However, the Auckland War Museum was able to help with some of that. Each floor had a theme: Maori history, NZ involvement in wars, natural history, and earth sciences/volcanoes.
There's also a LOTR Dwarf statue in the airport, so that's always handy.
On our way back from the magical day of hobbits and boiling mud, we even saw a rainbow! Then we topped off our day with delicious steaks. All in all, I'd say the Auckland area is super amazingly wonderful.
