An exhibition on German Samoa and its legacy, running until 19 February:

Lots of interesting photos and artefacts, including Imperial German flags swiped by NZ troops when New Zealand invaded German Samoa in 1914 (the first capture of German territory in that war).

Also, there is a concurrent exhibition of amazing art there on the same theme by Michel Tuffery (the artwork is for sale):
