About
The Sculptureum Experience is made up of three sculpture gardens and six art galleries spanning over 1.4km of flat paths. The private collection includes over 650 works of art by local and international artists. From live rabbits to the grand Chihuly glass chandelier and everything in between, you are guaranteed to find inspiration around every corner during your visit to this immaculately kept attraction. The 14 acre award-winning vineyard overlooks the sculpture gardens with views out to Little Barrier Island. Sculptureum wines are best enjoyed with a meal at Rothko Restaurant, Freddie's Outdoor Kitchen or The Terrace Lawn Bar, or savour the experience and take a bottle home.

The Sculptureum is a feast for your eyes. Whether you are an art lover or just have a general interest, you will find the exhibits enchanting. Some of the glass art is particularly memorable. Excellence is the word that comes to mind when I think of the layout, the selection, and the presentation of the items on display. My husband and I have travelled extensively and seen similar facilities overseas; the Sculptureum is, in our view, 'world-class'. Set In a lovely rural location, it will not disappoint.

Inspirational. There truly is something more outside the four walls we live in.Thanks Anthony for sharing your collection, for making art fun and giving NZ a first class art exhibition. Whether you are in to art or not you will be after a visit here. A great venue no matter the weather. Check out the food options too. Self catering to restaurants.

It was an amazing experience. There was a lot to see. There were very interesting art and sculptures to see. It was surprising to see our objects could be recycled and transformed into a spectacular art piece.

If you want to be intrigued and stimulated this is a great place to spend a day. Open air exhibits and a large series of interior galleries make for fascinating viewing.

this is an amazing place to spend a few hours, the whole place including all the paths and exibits are so well kept and presented the ground staff here must take hugh pride in there work. Such a diverse range of artwork it is understandable it took forty years to put together. This place is so worth the drive up from Auckland we were surprised it wasn,t crowded.
