“Decent collection”
Reviewed July 8, 2014 via mobile

Due to blustery, rainy weather we stopped at the Auckland Art Gallery. They have an interesting mix of local and international art pieces on display. It made for a good way to spend an hour.

It was raining and what a great find. Stunning old heritage building housing art from contemporary, to modern to Victorian. A great way to spend a couple of hours.

“Beautiful gallery”
Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

Free entry into this beautiful gallery, so peaceful and relaxing. I spent so much time here admiring all the works of art! I visited here on my first day in Auckland , in New Zealand in fact and was extremely jet lagged however this was the perfect place to visit to wind down. Highly recommend to anyone, even if you're not overly into art it's a must see!
