Believe it or not, Wellington has not one but two banking museums (see our review for the BNZ or Bank of New Zealand Museum, also on this site). Here visitors see 1844 promissory notes, wax sealing machines, the first check ever issued in New Zealand, and this country’s only working example of the MONIAC hydro-mechanical econometric computer—all displayed along with information on New 
Zealand’s economic and banking heritage.
