Auckland Art Gallery, Auckland Reviews
Awesome place for all ages. Easy access and close to Queen Street for buses. The exhibitions change frequently. Many are open and suitable for children. Baby changing facilities and a cafe plus large spaces make this great for children. All ages have something to admire. A great place
Definitely worth a short walk around the gallery to see some interesting art work. However information is limited; no WiFi available to download audio guide nor headphones provided... a redundant resource. Cloakroom staff returned my previously dry coat wrapped around a sopping wet umbrella(!) as if I should be grateful. A bit of common sense could gain this gallery great reviews and provide visitors with a better experience.
An intricately constructed (check out the ceiling woodwork) destination to spend some time mulling over contemporary and classic art. General exhibitions are free and visiting installations are worth a look. A trendy cafe and gift shop completes the picture.
Nice gallery, where parts are accessible with no entry, but a donation. The rooms of the former library building are gorgeous, as well as many of the fine painting. Splendid for a rainy day in Auckland (don't forget the cafe within the gallery to acquire new power for handling further adventures in town).
You have to love the gallery of portraits by Goldie! Photographers don't get the accuracy he does with his Maori faces. Worth it for that alone but the contemporary art is also interesting. We also enjoyed sticking dots in the Obliteration exhibit.
