  • The expos cchangent all the time, but this museum has a great trustee. This gives a good impression of modern art NZ. I find that the expos are better than in the art m oderne MacDonalds or the city gallery section

  • I was part of a team that ran a computing workshop here. the conference facilities are great and there is heaps of space. the acoustics are very good meaning participants were able to hear us without having to shout and the ambient sound was also dulled. Bathrooms were clean and completely accessible. The cafe onsite meant we didn't have to go far for lunch which was an added bonus.

  • Cool building, interesting art, great exhibits for adults and children alike. Kids will have a lot of fun with the interactive exhibits.
  • There is a Cafee in after visiting the galary
  • Funky building, great cafe, good space for venue hire. Exhibitions sometimes fall a bit flat, and the square could do with some beautifying, but overall worth a visit.
