One of the best museums we have visited. The building is quite beautiful. The exhibit of the indigenous New Zealanders was terrific. The WWII exhibit was fascinating.

When in Auckland take the time to visit the beautiful aqua museum and have a walk around the Domain. The cultural presentations on Māori, are informative, interesting and fun for the whole family. The exhibits are excellent and the views over the harbor are amazing.
