This is a definite must visit location if you visit Auckland. You can get there via one of the two companies that does the Hop On/Hop Off bus service. Allow a few hours to have a good look around. The top floor holds the War...More
After Te Papa, Auckland 's museum had a difficult task. However the combination of iconic location, friendly staff and accessibility for my wheelchair ensured this was a worthwhile way to spend an afternoon
This is a great museum with very interesting exhibits. The Maori exhibit was extremely interesting and well done. They have a special special exhibit on butterflies. The World War 1, and World War II, were both interesting. The gift shop is great.
As the full name implies, this museum is a memorial to those of New Zealand who fell in World War 1. It also has exhibits on Maori life, geological evolution of the area. Dinosaur skeletons and flora and fauna of the country. There is an...More
An interesting museum to visit. Lots of variety. Particularly excellent section on New Zealand and Paxific island culture. Our family took the option of the Maori Cultural snow. Was only 30 minutes but well worth the extra cost.
We also enjoyed the section on volcanoes....More
Great place to showcase NZ’s culture and history. One of the best museums I’ve ever been to. It’s a must-see destination for tourists and locals alike. Just make sure you have comfy shoes on and lots of hours to burn coz it’s a massive place.

Hi there Robert, if it's a large group of people, we suggest booking in advance, but for small parties it should be fine to just show up on the day! If you have any other questions, feel free to fire them through!

20 mins up hill. There is a free red bus that goes from Queen St (Auckland's main st) or Britomart terminus just 100m or so from cruise terminals. Alternatively you could take the Link bus for a couple of bucks. The free red bus or the link bus take you to all the main city sites and cruise ships dock right downtown so don't bother with expensive shore excursions. Locals are friendly and will be happy to point you in the right direction. Viaduct Harbour is also a short walk from the docks. you can see the old steam tug William c daldy there. ask for a look around. still coal fired and operational. :)
