It also houses paintings, sculpture and print collections of international artists, right from the 11th century to till date. Many people, kids as well as adults, enjoy trying their hand at Lego while at the museum.

Auckland Art Gallery, Auckland Reviews
Great space for local historically important artwork and local modern art installations. The international gallery is exactly what you’d expect in Auckland, lesser known artists and lesser known pieces from some of the greats. But the Maori artwork and NZ pieces are incredible! Lots of info about them and a great way to get a sense of what early relations were like between Europeans and the local Maori. Gallery is tasteful and architecture is beautiful. Really pleasant on a sunny day and worth the entry fee! I only wish they had a little more in terms of old Maori work, weather it be carvings, drawings or whatever. I was impressed by the water colour hall especially, but still wished for more Maori work.
Went there by myself to enjoy a few short films. From the very beginning I experienced good friendly service. The gallery was very tidy! Modern ! And there was a lot of interesting art works on display. They had works is display from all sorts of eras! I loved my visit so much that I signed up as a member so I can take a friend with me for free and so that I can get early notices of new exhibitions. Being a member I also get invited to special events such as opening night for an exhibit!! I can’t wait to show off the beautiful gallery to a friend!
Great for a day out with family, friends or by yourself. A variety of different seasonal and permanent exhibitions. Not big enough to spend hours there, which is good if you're looking for something to do to kill some time. Nice cafe on site too, overlooking Albert Park.
Great Cultural Artwork in Auckland Art Gallery, creates a beautiful variation of diverse arts and designs. Plenty of ideas you can aim for your research, projects, and etc. The Gallery's collection depicts life, art, photography and etc. The location is based at Wellesley Street East across the Auckland Public City Library. I photographed this perspective with some coloured cloud effect, to represent a beautiful Aotearoa - The Land of The Long White Cloud, as known as New Zealand.
A well located art gallery, though parking in this area is either very challenging or expensive. So it's highly recommended to walk or take a bus, if you can. The main foyer inside the gallery often host various interesting artworks, some are dynamic/interactive one. The gallery also have a great collection of the Victorian era art pieces. If you're a member, you can get some nice perks as well, such as free entry to the paid exhibition. Though their free exhibition are as good as their paid one. Every other Saturdays, there's free tango dancing at the amphitheatre behind the gallery.
