The building is a landmark of the city and you can get to it by public transport or a 30 min up hill walk from the Auckland university, the Museum and war memorial has 3 levels of display and a children’s section. All very interesting

I really liked this place, it’s a beautiful building in a beautiful park with a great view of Auckland and the bay. Inside there are some great exhibitions, a moving war memorial and even a WWII Spitfire aeroplane - excellent.
