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.

    A very enthusiastic welcome from reception staff and a detailed explanation of what was on offer and the relevance. Interesting to see the Diane Arbus exhibition and ponder why she picked these particular 10 photos to represent her work.
    Gallery is quite small but accessible so can be explored quite quickly

    It was a miserable day (as it turns out, midway between a cyclone and an earthquake!) so we enjoyed walking along the front in Wellington and came across the Gallery by chance. Although initially sheltering from the rain, we enjoyed our walk around the exhibits

    A cool little old industrial building has been refurbished into a small and intimate portrait gallery. Its not the biggest gallery you've ever seen, but its worth a visit to see what they have on display. On grade access throughout, and worth a visit as it won't take up a lot of your day.

    What a beautiful gallery. The glass work was fantastic and if I could would have walked out being broke. The ladies working were really friendly and helpful too.

    Beautiful little shop. It has unique items ranging from about $10 into the thousands. The service is amazing and the stories behind art work are given freely with no push to sell anything. If you like quirky gifts, beautiful jewellery and gorgeous little artworks I recommend this place! Easy to find on the wharf too.

    At the Southern end of Cuba Street, Wellington's most famous street, this art gallery specialises in New Zealand art. Most works are original oil paintings and water colours; there are also limited edition prints, drawings and also some inexpensive smaller prints and postcards.
    There are changing featured artist exhibitions, but always lots of different artists' works to view.
    Some artists are world famous and others are of the emerging artist category. A lot of the art is of Wellington but not strictly so. The gallery is tiny and the walls are fully utilised; this is not one of those two artworks per wall type galleries.
