Take the "Hop On Hop Off" bus tours from downtown Auckland and it is easy, inexpensive and entertaining to get here. We gave this place about a third of our day before hopping back onto the bus for the next leg of our tour but could easily have spent all day. Plenty of walking to do, inside and outside the...

Museum staff get 10 out of 10 for an excellent report from my recent international visitors. We got to see the maori experience and we all loved it. We learned a lot about their early maori traditions and customs and enjoyed the song and dance.

We took our 8yo and 4.5yo to the museum, loads of interesting things to look at for us all. Cafe was good and value was ok. Parking was also reasonable. Interactive things for the kids were set up

I remember going there as a kid and now again. It brings back lot of memories, good and bad. I understand it so much better now. Good and easy place to spend a whole day, even though we finished in half-day.

A lovely building in the centre of Auckland. Perfect for a wet afternoon visit. Our favourite was the Pacific section, which had lots of information about local culture and people. The cafe was nice too.

We just spent most of a Sunday at the museum and its grounds. The walk around the duck pond, winter garden and fernery was relaxing. The museum itself is kind of a hodgepodge, but its holdings in Maori culture and Polynesian culture more generally are spectacular and well curated. The exhibits emphasize the changes to Maori culture and its regional... More
