Paper vaccine pass wouldn't scan so treated like a criminal by staff who nearly didn't let me in. Then treated like a five year old when told to 'line up like you're in school'. Confusing layout of the exhibition and staff had no clue about anything and were generally unhelpful. Shambolic visitor experience and no Mary Quant souvenirs in the gift shop.

I enjoyed watching the installation of the new external exhibit. There's more to art than the object itself; the electrician wiring up the lights was performing his own artwork.
The signage pointing the direction of exhibitions was a little vague. It wasn't obvious where things were and I'm certain I missed many rooms due to loss of direction. Having said that, what I did see, I really enjoyed. The café staff were most accommodating to my food request and were friendly.
There is an odd thing though, in the café there is a seat which causes the voice of the person in it to carry around the room; the conversation was riveting, I wonder how the date went.

I am glad to see pacific islander art work. It's a great combination of shapes, forms and visuality. Keep it up.

Friend and I visited the Hokusai and Hiroshige Japanese print show Enchanted Worlds with a range of works from the edo period and contemporary artists.
Auckland City gallery was easy to find and sit outside on a fine day.

This gallery has a strange mix of modern and classical art - mostly painting, or multimedia (as opposed to sculpture), that left me feeling uninspired. The modern art seemed to be of a very poor quality - almost as if it were a joke on the artists' part. On the classical side of things they had an interesting display based around the theme of love, longing, and loss. There was also a feature on Colin McCahon, which was probably the better part of what the gallery had to offer.

We visited this via one of the hop on hop off buses. We bought the ticket with the entry included. The museum has a terrific Maori section and the Maori show was very very good. The military section was also very interesting and informative. The war memorial is in the grounds.

We had an excellent tour to start our visit, and continued to spend about 2hours+ at this lovely museum. Lots of interesting things to see, including the architecture of the building itself. Had a coffee stop at the cafe which was good, and the museum shop has many interesting items to look at as well. Highly recommended for a few hours in Auckland!
