This gallery is small and intimate but worthwhile having a look. You are able to take a photo or two but be mindful if it has a no photography sign. It has some lovely pieces for you to view and they also have carvings/sculptures outside in the front of the gallery. The heritage and culture of the Maori people is... More

Great spot to go visit when you have free time. I love admiring the exhibitions and also the events they have on outside for the youth are a great asset to which they're apart of. I loved visiting the gallery when it was open on ANZAC. Totally inspiring.

This place is really good. Take the kids, take your parents, take your friends, take yourself. An excellent drop in place while you are in town or visiting the library. Staff are informative and welcoming. I took a bunch of kids last holiday...like 18 of them! We all had fun.

Was not much to see as most of it was closed off. Was clean and the man at reception was excellent ad charges us very little due to it not all being accessable

Stop off here whenever you can. It is free and always has cool displays going on. Take the kids or just pop in yourself for a squiz. You can easily drop by during a trip to the library. It is just through the back doors. Really worthwhile.

Excellent little galley with such fun exhibitions. The one on portraits was particularly fab and had great questions and brilliant interactives throughout the room, to go with the portraits. It was probably meant for kids, but us two grown ups had a grand time...

Went to the corrugated art exhibition today. It is much better displayed than when it was in Tauranga. Just amazing. We also had time to watch the 16 min explanatory video - most interesting. There was also an unusual Chinese themed exhibition in the second gallery - I enjoyed it too. This gallery is always worth a regualr visit, it... More
