We paid 20 dollars each for entrance as international visitors, but worth the money. The Maori portraits are quite special in the museum. The cafe on 1st level is also nice to take a rest with a natural view of the park.

I visit the Auckland Art Gallery every time I'm in the city and it's always a highlight. I love the gallery spaces and the exhibitions are consistently excellent. It's also a good respite from the heat on a hot Auckland day.

This is a great collection of art from NZ and around the world. If you are even minimally interested in art, you will find plenty of exhibits to admire.

It has been a number of years since I visited the Art Gallery and now I wonder why I left it so long. The collection is beautifully presented and it works well against the architecture of the building. A strange mix of the old and...More
