Auckland Art Gallery - Review
Situated within a beautiful French-style mansion, the Auckland Art Gallery was established in the year 1888. It has New Zealand’s most extensive collection of art- historic, modern and contemporary. 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
A pretty cool spot if you like a bit of art. Plenty of contemporary art of various forms as well as more historical paintings are on display. A cafe is available for a break if needed. There were plenty of staff handy when I was there. Note for overseas visitors there is a cost involved payable on entry.
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!
Free to New Zealand residents. The gallery is spread over several floors. It is clean and tidy and had some interesting works scattered throughout. Worth a visit and the guided tour seemed very worthwhile with extra background knowledge provided.
Fantastic place. The guide had amazing knowledge and told us some really interesting and engaging stories about the art work on display. All other staff we met were also super helpful and nice. Everything was impeccably clean.
