It's free, it's convenient, it's fun and don't worry about the guard at the front, he's a statue. At least when we were there, there was a good selection of contemporary and Maori art. The building and grounds are themselves worth seeing.

Set aside a couple of hours to explore this Museum and learn about the natural and social history of New Zealand. A great way to start a visit to Auckland. When you're tiring you can recharge at the on site cafe and after the Museum take in the views of Auckland from the surrounding Domain park. You can also take... More

Be sure to time your visit to take in the Maori cultural experience - a really authentic and informative view of Maori culture and tradition, and the role that our first people have in our country. also a great experience for the kids - my 5 year old granddaughter rates this top of her list for rainy day activities.

A great museum, great Maori court and cultural show. The earthquake section is great too for adults and children alike. All sorts of things to see including the fabulous roof section. Also some of the most quality souvenirs in the city on sale at the shop

Always took the kids when they were little, they really enjoyed it, a bit of everything that represents NZ - the History, the People, live dance and music by the Maori Cultural Performers, lots of different exhibitions, a vast collection of cultural artefacts and information that you wouldn't normally get in books. Never loses its popularity, you can end up... More

Don't miss the Maori cultural experience it brings the whole place to life. This is a first class Museum with lots to see and do. Excellent for children and special exhibitions.

It is set in a lovely setting on a hill in a grand building and a great place to spend time on a wet day take a picnic as you can easily spen all day there and still not see it all.

It is sad that when you live in a city you don't always appreciate its attractions. The War Memorial Museum is right up there with the best, with excellent exhibitions. Its war section is on a par with the Australian War Museum, and a visit to the Hall of memories, with the thousands of incised names of the fallen, is... More

I visited the Auckland Museum as a parent help for my son's intermediate class. We had a treasure hunt which involved mostly New Zealand history. I keep thinking I really want to come back here without seven 11 year olds to have a slow walk around. I especially liked the dresses and outfits from the 1800's and items from that... More
