I'm a bit biased because I had just come from Rotorua the day before and visited a Maori village there, so I was comparing the Maori show at the museum vs actual Maori people living and performing their cultural heritage to tourists.
Objectively though, this performance is a good, humorous introduction to the different dances, songs and performance tools the Maori use, kind of like a Maori lite guide and isn't too long which suits well for families, children and others who are a little short on time. You also have a chance to talk with the performers and take pictures too which was nice to learn about the performers and why they decided to learn Maori dance and spread the culture.
The museum itself was lovely, many different exhibitions and I enjoyed the history of music exhibition very much.

Great museum but recommend doing the 1 hour guided tour as well as you get to learn a huge amount. The cafe did good food at reasonable prices.

Took some international guests and proved a worth while trip not too long and the historical story line was good. Stayed for a quick look through museum which was also quality time
