had an excellent cultural experience today with Pauline, Anna and Amelia, at the Auckland War Memorial Museum, and its exhibition of Ray Shannon's collection of butterflies. The butterflies themselves were wonderful, so many (13,000) that the Museum has done not one but two successive installations....More

We're not really museum types, but the description led us to give it a try. We thoroughly enjoyed the exhibits and learning about Maori heritage as well as New Zealand's role in global wars. The outside alone is worth a visit! It is a beautiful...More

Unfortunately someone in their wisdom chose to remove the Old Auckland village. It has now been replaced by endless computer rooms and of all things a butterfly room, more suited to the zoo. Our visits are definitely less enjoyable now.

well worth the trip - so much to see and do. Large space to allow at least 1/2 day to get in and have a look around.

Really wonderful museum, great opportunity to learn about New Zealand. It’s a combination of art and history, as well as a war memorial. You can easily spend several hours here.

It also covers many other subjects ioncluding information about Maori culture, prehistoric creatures, butterflies, the battle for sexual equality and even volcanoes.

Hi Carl, I recall that you needed to provide proof of residency - if you have any kind of ID which shows your Auckland address you should be fine.

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!
