We spent half a day inside Auckland's War Memorial museum and loved the way NZ's history, geography and culture are explained. The guided tour we took helped us understand a lot more than we would have had on our own. The Maori Haka dancing performance we saw was very entertaining. Highly recommended if you want to know more about NZ...

This is a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon. The displays are really interesting and informative on NZ's history and wildlife. A really good WWII display as well.

Really enjoyed the facility of this place, especially the individual guided tour focussing especially upon the Maori culture and history of populations, and turmoil resulting, in New Zealand. Recommended!

The Auckland Museum is a bit out of town but well worth the trip. We took Moa Package, comprising: • Museum entry • Highlights tour • Maori Cultural Show. One could easily spend a whole day at the Museum, for it includes the War Memorial as well as a whole heap of fascinating Maori exhibits - and a very good... More

Visited the Museum today, fascinating look at New Zealand and the pacific history. If you have a couple of hours its worth a look. Great exhibits and lots to see, as international visitors we had to pay to enter but it was very worth while, recommend for all types particularly families. Taxis are hit and miss so ask at the...

I spent an entire afternoon here. The three floors of displays are well done and cover a wide range of topics from the Maori culture, to early European settlers artefacts, to volcanoes (what else in Auckland?), to New Zealand's participation in various wars, to natural history including the extinct moa. Be prepared for lots of walking, but there are several... More

Great spot to walk through and get to know a bit about local history and culture. Not very expensive for NZ residents, not sure about tourist prices.

Auckland Museum and Domain. Must visit in Auckland but check the prices for entry. You can learn a lot of Maori culture, which I find interesting.

A nice way to spend a few hours if you are stuck for something to do in Auckland. A mixture of exhibits, from war memorial to NZ culture and society.
