Old world charm five minutes from the city.
Discover the history of our settlers at the delightful Nairn Street Cottage Museum. This venue offers an intimate indoor and outdoor setting for your next event. Nairn Street Cottage is within walking distance of the central city, but feels totally removed from the hustle and bustle of contemporary life. Enjoy drinks in the Visitor Centre or wander around the beautiful landscaped cottage garden.
Stunning views at the Cable Car Museum!
Located at the top of the Wellington Cable Car, with spectacular Wellington views a few meters away and the Botanic Garden at your feet, this two level Museum is perfect for a cocktail function.
