Small modern gallery with excellent displays
Jul 2020
At the time of our visit there was an exhibition of modern Maori carving intermixed with museum pieces of similar items. Very well presented and put together. There was also a a challenging display of recent art linked to a local competition. Well displayed and interest work

Modern Gallery

This is a modern building with local art inside. We stopped on our stroll about town when we were off our cruise ship. Impressive for such a small town.

Small but perfectly formed gallery. Mr G Home exhibition is moving and informative. The recent Banksy exhibition was a highlight. Highly recommended.

Underwhelming
Dec 2019
I like most museums generally but this really didn't float my boat. A vast, cavernous building is sprinkled with a few, not very interesting Maori exhibits, from their early tools (good) to some modern nonsense taking up valuable wall space. Sorry, not for me.

Staff very knowledgeable-Displays Impressive but Limited.

This only gets three stars only because it's a small gallery with only three small exhibits-- relaxing 20-25 minute stop. I enjoyed it and it was worth visiting. The staff was helpful and directed me to gallery stores in the neighborhood.

We have been there yesterday and we loved it so much..As soon as we entered the place this charming lady explained to us what was going on, and we founded super helpful and interesting. So one more time thank you Andrea !!
I have really enjoyed watching Kelcy Taratoa Work it was worthy to see it.
It was nice to see also how many artists keep pursing the brutal past of Maori through their works, there was a commemoration exhibition of the 155th Anniversary of the battle of gate pa on.
Most importantly it was very interesting to watch a video of a lady that still now a days keep on working a type of tree to make clothes out of it. Using technics From the past .
Price of ticket for internation 7 dollars.. Otherwise free donations .

The Tauranga Art Gallery is very accessible. There is a small car park alongside and more parking by the library. Exhibitions are changed regularly and are varied. There is a lift or stairs to the upper gallery. Entry is by donation. There are brochures giving information about the main exhibition on at the time. Allow about an hour to experience all the displays.
