“Give it more time than we did”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

We hadn't been to the Auckland Museum in a couple of decades. What a beautiful renovation and addition since then. We revisited the Maori section and, once again, enjoyed the cultural performance. We also learned quite a bit by going through the war exhibits on the upper level. Unfortunately, we only allowed about 4 hours for our visit (including lunch) and we could easily have spent several hours more taking in what they have to offer.

“Wintergarden disappointing”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

Did not visit the museum this time, but was disappointed at the state of the Wintergarden which is nearby. It is a beautiful Victorian glasshouse which sadly now consists of a few bedraggled hanging baskets, rows of straggly chrysanthemums and chilis and eggplants. Several years ago it was a mass of beautiful plants and a fabulous place to visit. What a disappointment.

“Very nice museum with great Maori exhibit”
Reviewed April 26, 2012

We spent a lazy Easter Sunday morning in the Museum, and it was a perfect way to wrap up our time in Auckland. The exhibits are well curated, the price is right, and the building and surrounding park are lovely.
