My littles ones enjoyed it. Bummer as the volcano part was not opened, as we went when after the second lockdown.

Kia ora Sina, thanks for taking the time to share feedback on your visit! We're sorry that Volcanoes wasn't open when you came. As it's a high-touch gallery we had to close it for Level 2 lockdown - but it's now back open!

One of the best, most comprehensive museums in the South Pacific
Feb 2020
This is a HUGE place. When we went there, in February, 2020, the restaurant was under renovations, and we had to eat in a temporary area, but the food (snacks) was still good. We found the permanent and temporary exhibitions (one on Captain Cook's Polynesian interpreter, another on volcanoes) to be most impressive. The upstairs area is delightfully old-fashioned, with the stained-glass ceilings an echo of old-time museums. We paid extra for the Antarctica Virtual Reality (VR) Experience. There was some confusion as to where it was located; after taking the elevator/lift, we had no idea where to go, and no one was on hand to tell us. However, when we finally found the group, the experience was quite wonderful. We certainly felt like we were in Antarctica, in the helicopter, on the ice, etc.

Kia ora, thanks for your kind words! We're so glad to hear you enjoyed the Museum as much as we do. Sorry to hear you got lost on your way to the Antarctica VR Experience it was a bit tricky to find. We did ask our staff members to wait at the bottom of the stairs for the group before heading up to where the experience takes place, you may have just missed them.

History of a proud people
Dec 2019
For an Australian visitor, the most interesting part of the MUseum's collection is to do with the Maori people. The "waka" was especially interesting. The "waka" are the long canoes that were ocean-going vessels; they brought the Maori to New Zealand. Very few of them survive. The War Memorial Galleries tell the story of New Zealand's participation in overseas conflicts. The Memorial is currently being revitalised. Opening times are variable due to the COVID-19 virius, but the Mueum is a revelation for anyone intrested in New Zealand's history.

We very much enjoyed a long afternoon at the Auckland Museum. As first time visitors to New Zealand, the extensive exhibit about Maori culture and the other related Polynesian cultures and their histories was fascinating and informative. An added bonus was the Maori Cultural Experience which included native performers presenting traditional songs, chants and dances. The second level of the museum contains the war memorial galleries involving the experiences of New Zealand in the First and Second World Wars. Having had a father who was involved in the war in the Pacific made it of special interest to us. Our feet gave out before our interest in this excellent museum. Great way to start our trip learning about the maori people and more. Loved learning the history and makes me appreciate being here on holiday.

It's good for a one off
I went for the first time in 15yrs
There is some great information there but to be honest it just doesn't seem as interesting as other museums in the world. Not sure why it just seems to not have a major wow factor for me. Still good to go every once in a while to see what's happened in the past locally

Interesting and impressive
Feb 2020
This very large and imposing museum, high on a hill, has lots of interesting and informative sections on three floors including Maori history, sections on war and history, and a factual but potentially scary section on volcanoes. I particularly enjoyed the natural history area, and was impressed to see the stuffed albatross and the amazingly huge flightless Moa bird - a recreation showing that its legs were taller than me! Well worth a visit.

A really enjoyable morning
Jan 2020
What an interesting place with something for everyone. I particularly enjoyed the Maori culture and Pacific Island section while my husband's favourite was the war museum part. We had a lovely chat with a lady working at a desk near the war section who was very knowledgeable. The museum was nicely laid out and we found it easy to work our way around all the exhibits. It is definitely worth spending half a day here if you are in Auckland, we would definitely go again.
