When we were there they had a photographic exhibition on which was absolutely superb. Didn't have time to visit the whole museum hence only 4 stars

We were visiting the area from the US and had a short stopover that we wanted to make the best use of our time. We spent a couple hours at the museum, but wish we had more time. It was a great place to learn about the culture and natural resources of the area. We did watch the Maori Cultural... More

With its prime position and its magnificent collections there is a lot to like - but it can get frightfully crowded, especially on wet winter days.

Although you have to pay to get in, as international visitors the museum gave us a good overview of everything New Zealand. The War museum is extremely good and as Brits we are extremely grateful for New Zealand's efforts in World War 1 and 2.

Loved this show! Great insight to the Moari Culture. Loved the Haka. The rest of the museum was great too. A little expensive but worth it for the history.

Honestly, I never enter museum since I came to NZ, but I always go there and walk around with my girlfriend and friends, it got beautiful view no matter it is day time or during the night. It is definitely a good place to chill and date. You can take a relax walk there, drive your own car, or take... More

WE originally planned a quick trip to the museum one Sunday right after opening. WE would never have imagined that 5 hours later we would be leaving! This was our first trip to NZ and we found the museum a wonderful and complete overview of the history of New Zealand and it's peoples. Take you time and enjoy this wonderful... More

I love visiting Auckland Museum. We have had visitors over from Italy and we have taken them to the museum each time. There is so much to see and learn - everyone's favorite is always the earthquake room. Personally though I like visiting the Museum on ANZAC day. It feels so 'kiwi' and respectful to see the museum and then... More

Great museum to visit when you are in town. Everyone should check it out at least once. I paid for a guide that took us through a small portion of the museum and she was great. She provided valuable information that you would not get if you walked around the museum on your own. Highly recommend a guide. The Maori... More
