“Worth at least half a day!”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

A wonderful place to spend a few hours, especially on a rainy Auckland day. Interesting architecture seamlessly adding a large addition to an older Auckland building. Excellent exhibits and a fine cafe. Few other major cities have such an excellent facility with no entrance fee.

“Nice place to stay a while”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

The building is absolutely outstanding. Being there is a relaxing experience. We were lucky because the exhibition those days were really interesting. Free Wifi and a nice coffee shop are also a couple of good features
