  • No entrance fee to pay, free wifi and seats to wait until the wife is ready to see the art :-)) the people are not loud and I'm sure there are nice things to explore 
  • 到新西兰,主要是自然环境和景观,文化方面,奥克兰就主要是奥克兰博物馆和奥克兰美术馆。 美术馆地理位置优越,就在市中心,位于阿尔伯特公园旁边,过去16届的元宵灯节就在此公园举行,开幕酒会在奥克兰美术馆举行。 
  • Friends of ours advised us not to miss this art museum while in Auckland, and they sure steered us right! There is a very large collection of Maori portraits that are very detailed and very well done....  more »

  • Love this place. The gallery building itself is beautiful. They have a great selection of local and native art, as well as international pieces. And the best part is it's free for locals. Check it out!
  • While the collection of the museum might not be so impressive compared to its European counterparts, its state-of-art architectural design and the effort to make the gallery interesting deserves a 5-star rating. Plus it has a great cafe a free wifi.
  • Wonderful public art gallery with special galleries that require you to purchase tickets. Check the website for free gallery tour times; the guides are volunteer docents who love art and having people to talk to art with. Also check out the gift shop, if only for the cheeky shopping bags.
  • Building is historic with some nice modern features. Free to go to, with the occasional pay to see exhibition. Good art work on display
  • Beautifully restored historic building with some modern rap around architecture. Good variety of exhibits. Me, I like the experimental unusually ones.
