“Learn about Maori culture”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

In my opinion, the Auckland Museum has the best display of Maori artefacts available in one place in New Zealand. It is a must-see for overseas visitors.

“Encompassing museum, pricey but worth a day visit”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

To go to Auckland without learning some of the anthropology and history, would have been a waste. With a non cheesy Maori show, and humongous physical samples of the culture throughout the well designed building...easy to spend a day here. And very much worth the bang for your cash!

“Central to the city”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

A well set up and presented museum, easy to get around all the exhibitions which are varied and interesting. My Grandchildren (Primary School age) just love going to the Museum and when ever they visit Auckland that is top of their list of the activities that they want to do whiie they are here. The interactive displays are great and give an interesting perspective of their specific topic(s). Very well done, not expensive and certainly very worthwhile visiting

“Museum”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

A grand entranceway to this museum. A little confusing as you go through various departments, but magnificent wide staircases, give such a feeling of grandeur, getting lost for a bit is a little bit fun too.
Displays of NZ's Maori history, and of colonial NZ give a interesting insight to how NZ has developed as a nation, both culturally and politically.
There are many other displays that are fun interactive areas for the younger at heart to explore and learn.

“Good museum”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

Thought it was a tad pricey but the simulated volcano eruption scared the crap out of me.

Beautiful building on a hill with great views-photo opportunity
