  • Very clean and open plan with many things to see! There was a live choir rehearsal going on as we were looking at the amazing Maori paintings. They were my favorite also the classic art selection was breath taking. TAKE NOTE. Park in the Victoria st parking as it is cheaper than the one on Kitchener st we paid $26 for the 2 hours there. Gallery is free entry for NZ citizens, travellers need to pay. Fully enjoyable experience!
  • The best part for me were of our ancestors pictures. Staunch, fierce & beautiful. I couldn't get enough of looking into the eyes of our ancestors and the feeling you get, my experience was touching. See for yourself I hope you feel the same way I did
