“Lovely way to spend a couple of hours on a grey afternoon.”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

When we're there, they have an art session for young kids. Our daughter absolutely loved it and we had fun working together to create a little art to take home.

The Auckland art gallery is worth spending a couple of hours in. The building itself is lovely and the range of art styles makes for interesting viewing for all levels of art critics/appreciators. The cafe is also with visiting.
