Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The ArtsPost shop and gallery is co-located with the Hamilton i-Site. There is a great array of painting, sculpture, and ceramics, with crafts and souvenirs to buy.

It is a great combination of both gallery and shop together. These brings insights of both art and marketing strategies together.

At the time of my visit there was a quality ceramics exhibition. It was well set out, indicative of an attempt to display items to their maximum benefit rather than just lumping as many items as possible together.

This art gallery has a different exposition of mainly Waikato artists every month. The quality of the art is not every time superbe, but there is always something interesting. We bought a lot of art here over the years.

Nice works of art and crafts on display and for sale. The prices seem fair. It is right near the Waikato Museum so you can visit it after the museum.

You won’t find any tacky souvenirs here. Beautiful local art and smaller keepsakes. Contemporary NZ art, traditional Maori art, and infused art with local influence. Painting, photography, sculpture, jewellery. So hard to choose a single piece. Staff are full of local information and willingness to share.

There is a new exhibition every month in the art gallery, many are interesting and all the art is for sale. The shop has a very diverse collection of mainly Waikato and all New Zealand made art.

I enjoyed going to the ArtPost Galleries and seeing the wide variety of arts they had. There was glass, fiber art, prints, jewelry, ceramics---all kinds of stuff, that was great. Neat building too. I was hoping to find something I liked enough to purchase and bring home. I was tempted, but in the end I decided that the quality just didn't justify the prices. I thought things were over priced. Still a fun visit though.
