  • One of the best art museums anywhere in the world. The most memorable exhibit for me is the gallery focused on beautiful modern design. It evokes a sense of the pinnacle of minimalism as a lover of modern architecture and design. The other exhibits were just as fantastic with pieces from a wide range of local and internationally recognized artists. The museum and special exhibits are even available for FREE for locals and foreign visitors alike during Auckland Anniversary Day. Staff are all super friendly and willing to help at every corner.
  • Lovely art gallery in the center of Auckland. I was a little sad they didn’t have everything open, so many exhibits were closed down. However the open areas were wonderful. Nice cafe and outdoor areas. Gift shop also nice.
